Laotian name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random Laotian names and surnames.

Laos is a country in Southeast Asia with a population of roughly 6.8 million. The official languages are Lao, Hmong and Khmu. Laos has had a turbulent history, which has resulted in many cultural influences from outside to have a significant impact on Laotian culture today.

As far as names go, Laotian name order is the same as you'd find in most Western countries, which is personal name first and the surname last. However, while you would find the surname on official documents, you would still refer to somebody by their personal name (plus any honorifics, etc.) in formal situations.
Outside of formal situations many Laotian people will use nicknames to refer to each other instead of using their personal names. To outsiders these names can seem offensive, especially when taken out of context. Names like 'fatty' are common, but this nickname is only given to skinny girls and is given in jest, just like most other nicknames.
