Jamaican name generator

This name generator will generate 10 random names more commonly found in Jamaica.

Jamaica is an island country in the Caribbean Sea with a population of about 3 million people. Their official language is English, but the more commonly spoken language is a creole language called Jamaican-Patois, which is a mixture of English and mostly Western African languages.
This mixture of influences can also be found in Jamaican names, which not only come from African languages and English, but also from Spanish, Portuguese and other cultures of colonists and slave masters of earlier times.

These influences can mainly be found in their surnames, as first names are usually more influenced by English and African languages. But it's not uncommon to find names the other way round or a mixture of both. It can lead to some odd combinations you might not expect from a country in the Caribbean, like a Scottish surname for example.
