RWBY name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random names for both RWBY characters and RWBY teams.

RWBY is a very popular animated web series part of Rooster Teeth Productions. RWBY is about 4 characters, part of team RWBY (Ruby), who are training to become huntresses at Beacon Academy in order to battle the shadowy creatures known as the 'Creatures of Grimm'. They do so alongside several other teams, like team JNPR (Juniper) and team CVFY (Coffee).

The RWBY universe has a set of naming rules set by the creator, which are as follows:
- Character names must be either a color, sound like a color, have the meaning of a color or remind you of a color.
- Team names must be 4 characters long, be made up from the first letter of each team member's name and must form an acronym that is either a color, sounds like a color, has the meaning of a color or remind you of a color.

Since 'remind you of a color' is very subjective I pretty much ignored that rule and focused purely on the other 3 rules. Even while avoiding all the names that could remind you of a color I was still able to come up with 100's of names using color names alone.
I also mostly avoided using similar sounds in team names, like 'RWBY' vs 'RUBY' or 'REDD' vs 'REDT' vs 'RETT' and so on. But even while avoiding this for the most part I was still able to come up with nearly 400 names, so there's plenty to pick from and even more to play around with, in case you need a different character to fit the acronym rule for example.

I've also included the color name in brackets behind every name, this way you can see how I came up with the name and you can judge for yourself if you think it's a good fit or not.
