Dutch renaissance name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random Dutch names from the renaissance period.

The Dutch (and Flemish) renaissance happened in the 16th century through influences of the Italian Renaissance. For the Netherlands, this lead to the Dutch Golden Age, which started in 1588 and ended in 1672 when the Rampjaar (meaning disaster year) happened. During the Golden Age, trade, art, colonization, and science were fueled feverishly and the Dutch became one of the more prominent powers in the world through East and West India Companies. Their ships controlled the seas and controlled a spice trade monopoly, usually with disastrous results for any local population colonized by them.

As far as names go, you'll notice many names still resemble those used today. The majority in altered form, but some in the same form as hundreds of years ago. But you'll likewise notice many names have fallen out of fashion as well. Either way, there are plenty of names in this generator to pick from no matter the type you need.
