Anime character name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random names for anime and manga characters.

Anime and manga character names typically fall into one of three categories: real names, fake names and unique or nicknames. Real names are usually just regular Japanese names, but can be from other cultures too depending on the anime. Nicknames and unique names tend to be very specific and often belong to the main character, like Ichigo from Bleach, Light from Death Note, or Naruto from Naruto.
The fake names, which this generator focuses on, are similar to regular Japanese names, but you generally wouldn't find them in real life. Sometimes they're used to add a fantasy feeling to a story, sometimes they're used to avoid (accidental) matches with real life people, especially if a character is portrayed in a negative way, and other times it may be a more personal choice of the writer. Either way, this generator will generate a whole range of fake Japanese name fit for those types of anime and manga characters.
Like regular Japanese names, the names in this generator are in surname - personal name order.
