Khmer name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random Khmer names and surnames, note that surnames are displayed first, as is customary in Cambodia.

Khmer people are an ethnic group in Cambodia and make up roughly 90% of the total population. There are only about 15 million people in Cambodia, which itself is a country in Southeast Asia between Thailand and Vietnam.
Many of the non-Khmer people are of Vietnamese and Chinese origin, which is often reflected in their names and surnames.

Khmer names are relatively simple and often have positive meanings associated with them, though these days the meanings aren't always known. Female names are often related to flowers and beauty, while male names are often related to virtues. As far as pronunciation goes, the emphasis is usually placed on the last syllable, but if you want to be really accurate you'd have to learn a little Khmer to fully understand how to pronounce each element.

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.
