This name generator will give you 10 names fit for runners in the Shadowrun universe.
Shadowrun is a highly popular role-playing game set in a near-future universe where industrial espionage is pretty much the norm. When industrial espionage leads to successful data theft or physical break-in, this act is called a shadowrun. Those part of it are the Shadowrunners (often shortened to just runners). The universe itself is a mixture of the near-future with fantasy elements. Elves, dwarves, orks and trolls are all playable species alongside humans, and mythological beings and magic are part of this universe too.
Names are mostly the same as in real life, meaning that no matter whether you play an ork, elf, troll, human or dwarf, you'll have a name belonging to any of the current cultures and languages for the most part. Many runners have a runner-name as well though, which is essentially a nickname. These can technically be anything, but are often based on a personality trait, physical trait or other outstanding feature. This generator focuses entirely on these names as there are plenty of real name generators to pick from for regular names.
