Plague name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random names for plagues, outbreaks and other epidemics. The names are all in a kind of nickname style, similar to how the bubonic plague is often referred to as the Black Death, for example.

Besides the Black Death, epidemics in real life aren't given similar names all that often. Instead they're often named after the place it occurred or started in, so if you want to stick closer to real life, this could be an option to consider as well. But when the origin is unclear and its reach is wide, nicknames will work great, especially since they sound more ominous. Either way there's plenty to pick from, but most names do share a common theme of death, agony and just general misery as is to be expected from names related to widespread diseases.

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.
