Detective name generator

This generator will generate 10 random names fit for a detective, cop, or other crime fighter.

Obviously detectives can have pretty much any name, it's not like they're born with a special name or change their names once they get the job. However, in many works of fiction detectives tend to have a certain type of name, a strong sounding name. This isn't the case in all works of fiction, but it's what I stuck to for this name generator.

To illustrate my point about strong names, here are a few examples from works of fiction: James Bond, Sherlock Holmes, Dexter Morgan, Bruce Wayne, Veronica Mars, Jane Austen, Dana Scully, and so on. All these names sound good, they're easy to pronounce, and they fit a strong detective. Names (of detectives) in real life aren't always this 'perfect', so it'll be up to you whether you want to go with only good sounding names, only realistic names (not that these aren't realistic), or a mix of both.

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.
