Alien species name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random names for alien species.
It's both easy and difficult to create alien names, as they can be anything in any language. But the names have to sound like a good fit for the species you've invented, so I've tried to make sure many different types of names can be generated, but they generally fit in 3 different categories.

The first 4 names have a much higher chance of having a more guttural sound to them, ideal for the stronger and brutish looking aliens.
The next 3 names have a much higher chance of having a more melodic sound to them, making them ideal for the softer and gentle looking aliens.
The last 3 names can sound both guttural and melodic and anything in between. These names are more randomized than the previous 2 types and unlike the other 2 types, these aren't always easy to pronounce in English.

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.
