Kitsune name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random names for kitsune and similar beings, although the names could fit a wide range of Japanese beings.

Kitsune translates to fox, which is exactly what kitsune are with the exception that in folklore they have magical powers. Kitsune are intelligent beings with magical powers that grow as they age and gain more wisdom. However, no matter their age, all kitsune usually have the ability to shape shift into a human form. Their powers, and more specifically their age and wisdom, are sometimes shown through the amount of tails a kitsune has, which could be as many as 9.
While many kitsune use their powers to become guardians and just all-round friends of humans, some use their powers to play tricks instead.

In this name generator you'll find 2 types of names. The first type, represented by the first 5 names, are randomized names that are Japanese in sound, but are usually just fake words and names. Occasionally you might come across a real name or word though, but this is fairly rare. If you're looking for real names you'll want to look for the second type of name, represented by the last 5 names.
The last 5 names are real names, and I've added the meanings of those names in brackets. I picked only those names I think fit a fox, so most names are related to their looks and personality.

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.
