Skulduggery Pleasant name generator
This name generator will give you 10 random names fit for the Skulduggery Pleasant universe.
Skulduggery Pleasant is a series of fantasy and horror novels about a skeleton detective named Skulduggery Pleasant and a teenage girl named Stephanie Edgley, as well as many other characters. The main story arch is about Stephanie trying to stop evil forces that threaten all life as well as an internal struggle within her to prevent the darkness within her from getting out.
A big part of the story also revolves around the power of names and especially the control it gives others over you if they figure out your given and/or true name.
There are 3 types of names within the Skulduggery universe. The first are given names, which are just regular names given at birth. The second are taken names, which are essentially fake names you use to make sure whoever you deal with has no power over you as the name you've given them is something you made up. However, taken names do have to fit you in some way so a big, bulky guy can't really take the name 'Skinny Slim' for example.
Lastly there are the true names. True names are the source of magic and those who know their own true name have immense power, but if someone else knows your true name you're pretty much at risk of becoming a controlled slave.
This generator generates taken names and true names. However, since there are only 3 known true names in the Skulduggery universe I did take some artistic liberties to expand upon them. I do think most names still fit closely within the style of those 3 names though, but some fit it more strictly than others.
Since taken names are mostly descriptive names made up of adjectives, nouns and sometimes verbs they're mostly unisex. But some words are often considered more masculine and some more feminine, so I did create 2 separate categories for them. Some names can be found in both categories though.
