Edwardian name generator

This name generator will generate 10 random Edwardian names and surnames.

The Edwardian period is the period starting in 1901 and leading up to the first World War (1914). During this period Great Britain was reigned by King Edward VII, but also includes the 4 years beyond his death in 1910. The Edwardian period is often seen as a somewhat romantic period, especially due to the stark contrast of World War I after it, and the relative peaceful Victorian era before it.

As far as names go, the Edwardian period opened up to a lot more acceptable possibilities. English names were no longer the only acceptable names as Welsh, Irish and other names slowly began to increase in popularity and acceptance. Names were also no longer status dependent as nobles and commoners alike began to share the same names more and more.
Many names from the Edwardian era are still popular today, though there are quite a few that have fallen out of style, or have changed significantly to be pretty much considered two completely different names.
Surnames obviously didn't change much during this relatively short period, and most surnames are still alive and well today.
