Frankish name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random Frankish names.

The Franks were a group of German tribes who eventually grew to become the rulers of vast territories in Western Europe, mostly covering parts of France, Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany depending on how far back in time you go. While the term 'Franks' is often used to refer to all the tribes as a whole, they weren't always united as one. Before the fall of Rome some of the Franks were allies of Rome, while others raided Roman territories. It wasn't until the fall of Rome that the Frankish tribes were united.

Frankish names may look familiar to some. They're an odd mixture of Nordic, Germanic and Latin influences, though the latter is the least prominent of the three. Some Frankish names are still in use today, either in its original form or in a slightly altered form, but most will seem completely foreign.
There are no Frankish surnames because surnames weren't used during their time. Surnames are a relatively modern concept.
