Plague doctor name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random (nick)names for plague doctors, nurses and similar people with a focus on how they're often portrayed in (darker) fantasy.

Plague doctors once played a role in during the Bubonic plague as people who would, in theory, treat anybody regardless of their social status. But because they were volunteers and didn't require a finished medical training (or even any training at all), these treatments weren't always effective or free. They were also seen as warnings by some; the arrival of a plague doctor was a clear sign to leave the area for it was infected.
These elements have been used in fiction in all sorts of ways, often in more sinister, plague-testing practitioner ways. These characters are often given nicknames as well, like Professor Putricide in World of Warcraft. This name generator focuses on such names, with themes surrounding diseases, death, cures and their typical crow-mask looks. I've also included translations into French and Spanish as well, for more options and opportunities for more subtle names for different target audiences.
