Mad scientist name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random names for crazy professors, mad scientists, and other less-than-sane people of science.

While technically anybody could be a mad scientist if they go crazy, mad scientists in pop culture often have (nick)names to reflect their crazy nature. Doctor Poison from Wonder Woman and Doctor Octopus from Spider-Man are such examples, but they're common in cartoons and video games too, perhaps more so than other works of fiction. This generator focuses on such names and will cover a variety of names. From the cartoony, like Dr. Despair, to the more word play inspired, like Prof. Bird (giving him a literal Bird brain), to ones that work only when their title is added and read, like Prof. Anity (profanity).

As far as the latter ones go, some of my favorites include Prof. Iterol (profiterole) and Dr. Hugs (drugs). But I also discovered, far too late, that the Pokemon professor, Oak, could've been read as Provoke (Prof. Oak). Obviously all the professors were named after trees, but I thought this was a fun coincidence anyway.
