American English name generator

This name generator will generate 10 random American names, mostly English in origin, but with others mixed in as well.

The USA is obviously an incredibly diverse country in a wide range of ways. A plethora of family histories and backgrounds leads to a whole lot of different names and surnames, many of which are covered in this generator. I did focus primarily on names with more English or European origins as other backgrounds are covered by many of the other real name generators on this site, but there are many names of different backgrounds so common in many US states you'll also find those in this generator.
Naming trends do vary from state to state, so some of the less popular names overall may be out of place in one state and not another, but that's part of the diversity of the USA.

If you're looking for Australian, Canadian or British English names or simply want to compare them more, check out the links at the bottom of the page. While they're all mostly English, there are cultural differences between them 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.
