Civilization name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random names for civilizations, with a great variety and use of various cultural influences.

Naming a civilization is a little tricky as the name could be pretty much anything, especially if a fictional language is involved. But even in existing languages the names will be different. Would you consider 'Aztec', 'Ottoman', or 'Celts' to be the correct names of those civilizations or would the names used in their respective languages be correct?
This generator focuses mostly on names with a more foreign sound to them, as if they're the names used in the language part of that civilization. But there are plenty of names which could be an English version as well.

I took inspiration from various cultures, languages, and civilizations from around the world, so some names will have a specific sound to them, like African, Asian, or European. There's also plenty of fantasy-themed names, this is a fantasy oriented site after all. Either way, there are many different types of names, some kept short, and some kept longer on purpose. The longer ones do tend to get more abstract due to there being more randomized elements, but they still work great for various themes.

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.
