Thai name generator

This Thai name generator will generate either 10 male or female names depending on your choice. Both male and female versions share the same last names.

Names are translated from the Thai alphabet to the Roman alphabet, so some names might not have been translated well.

The Thai family name system is different from most other countries. In the year 1913 all Thai families had to pick a family name, but every family had to have a different last name. This means there are countless Thai family names, but unfortunately for foreigners, many Thai last names are incredibly long and nearly impossible to pronounce without some practice.

This generator only has 'shorter' surnames, but many of them are still much longer than most Western surnames.
Also, from what I've read, Thai people rarely use their family name, apparently it's possible to have a best friend for years without really knowing his/her family name.

Thai people also generally use a nickname rather than their first name as using their first name is usually too formal. I've been told Thai nicknames can be almost anything, from nouns and adjectives to names from other languages.
