Human species name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random names for human species, similar to names like Homo sapiens, Homo erectus and Homo neanderthalensis. Some would consider these caveman names, but it depends entirely on the context, especially considering the names in this generator are fictional.

The names of human species are usually either characteristic describing or place describing. For example, Homo sapiens means 'wise man', Homo erectus means 'upright man' and Homo neanderthalensis is named after the Neandertal valley in Germany.
In this generator I focused purely on the ability or aspect describing names, and I've included a translation in brackets behind each name. The term Homo means 'man' or 'human', which you could replace with any other name for any other species to effectively get the same kind of species names, but for other types of species instead. For example, 'Canis sapiens' would mean 'wise dog'.

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.
