Banshee name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random names for banshees, but the names will work for similar spirits and beings as well.

A banshee is a female spirit who mourns the loss of a relative, and tends to do so by shrieking loudly. There are many different variants of banshees today, some come to existence through huge amounts of pain for example, while others are simply beings with the power to deafen their enemies. The overlapping theme is almost always high pitched screams and feminine spirits though.

Banshees originate in Irish mythology, and as such the only named banshees have Irish names. Since I already have an Irish name generator on this site I decided to focus entirely on the more nickname-like names instead. Names like "The Ivory Maiden" or "The Shrieking Wife", for example. These names tend to be more common in games as well, but if you want to add more back-story to your banshee, and require a personal name, I definitely recommend starting with real names, either Irish or otherwise depending on the cultural background you need.

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.
