Georgian name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random Georgian names and surnames.

Georgia is a country on the border of East Europe and West Asia, situated south of Russia and East of the Black Sea. It has a population of less than 4 million, over a quarter of which live in the capital city Tbilisi.

Their naming structure is fairly similar to most Western systems, as they have a given name and a surname in that order. But the surname is often a patronymic based name. A suffix is added to the father's name, which is often altered slightly and the result is the surname. Many suffixes are related to ethnicity and location, but 2 more common suffixes are 'shvili', meaning 'child of', and 'dze', meaning 'son of'.
As far as I can tell this system isn't really used anymore, but the old names did stick. There are many Georgian women with a surname ending in the 'dze' suffix for example, which is similar to how names like 'Johnson' stuck as surnames in English speaking countries.
