This name generator will give you 10 random names for ghosts, spirits, phantoms, and other ethereal beings.
Depending on the type of spirit and the work of fiction, spirits usually tend to either keep their name from before their death, or they get a nickname based on their appearance or behavior.
There are also spirits who will take on a new name, either because they can't remember their life or because they want to shed the memories of that life.
This generator has 2 types of names. The first 5 names in this generator are names which are related to death, the afterlife, spirits, unfulfilled purposes, and pretty much anything else to do with ghosts. The names can be both positive and negative, they can be quite obvious in meaning (e.g. Guide - Guyde, Aura - Auriana), or less so.
These names are usually used as subtle or far from subtle hints as to who or what this spirit may be like.
The last 5 names are nicknames. Like the previous 5 names, these names can be both positive (The Defending Servant) and negative (The Vicious Baron), as well as downright creepy (The Midnight Visitor).
These names tend to fit ghost stories well, especially those with malignant ghosts, but there are plenty of names for gentle spirits as well.
