Malagasy name generator

This name generator will generate 10 random Malagasy names.

Madagascar is an island country off of the coast of East Africa. It has a population of roughly 25 million people comprised of many different ethnic groups. The largest, the Merina people, make up only about 26% of the population.
Being a former French colony, Madagascar's official languages are French and Malagasy, which is reflected in their names as well.

Malagasy names are known for their length. While this isn't the case for all of them, there are many incredibly long names. You mostly find these among surnames, which is a result of trying to show lineage and wishes for the child within a name. So the higher born the child, the longer the surname usually was.
Today many French names are given as well, but surnames will generally still be Malagasy. In this generator you'll find both Malagasy and French first names.
