Demonym generator

This generator will generator 10 random demonyms based on either a randomized place name or one you've entered yourself.

A demonym, also known as a gentilic, is a word used for the people (or things) of a place, like 'American', 'African', 'Martian', or 'Earthican'. Demonyms can get a little weird, which often depends on the history and language behind the place of origin. For example, people from the Netherlands are Dutch, people from Madagascar are Malagasy, and a Dane is from Denmark.
This generator will generate a bunch of random demonyms in various different styles, but since you probably already have names for the various places in your own universe, there's also an option to fill in your own place, and have the generator generate a bunch of random demonyms based on that place.

To start, simply click on the button to generate 10 random names. Don't like the names? Simply click again to get 10 new random names.
