Mayan name generator

This generator will generate 10 random Mayan names at a time.

"The Maya" is usually used to refer to all indigenous people from Mesoamerica who speak the Mayan language, but there are many different groups within those people, each with their own cultures, histories and customs. While far too much is lost of the ancient Maya cultures, a lot is also preserved. 8 million people still speak and inhabit the language and lands of their ancestors, the 260 day calendar is still in use, and many Maya beliefs are still alive today.

I couldn't find many (reliable) sources of Mayan names unfortunately, especially female names are lacking, but that's a trend seen often throughout history. Most names belong to deities, which were often used to name a child, but there are some 'regular' names as well.

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.
