Date (year & month) name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random names of years, months, and days, which will be suitable for both modern, futuristic, and historic settings depending on the category you pick from. The names have been divided into 4 categories.

The first 2 names have a code name as a year name (like 5B, 8Q, etc), and a random name for the month. This method is used a lot in fictional works in which the exact year isn't too important, and also meant to mask the exact year for various reasons. This masking is the reason behind the star-date naming system of Star Trek, for example.

Names 3, 4 and 5 have a random name for the month, and an animal name for the year (Year of the Fox, etc). These names could be used for any setting, but usually fit historical settings best. The animals could give special meaning to that year.

Names 6, 7 and 8 have random names for both the day, month and year, and could thus be used in any setting, in (almost) any language.
The last 2 names have a more descriptive name for the month, and an animal name for the year, like names 3, 4 and 5. These names tend to fit historical settings best, but many names could be used for all.

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.
