Slave name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random names for enslaved people commonly found in fiction. Depending on the style you're going with in your works of fiction, these names might work best as nicknames or derogatory names, rather than personal names.

In real life, enslaved people were often given names by their oppressor, and most names would be normal, everyday names, at least to the oppressor. The enslaved would likely consider these names to be foreign and strange, and as such it stripped them further of their humanity and true identity beyond being enslaved in and of itself. Some would receive names based on where or when they were bought, others would be given names based on behavior, and others would receive names which were insulting, derogatory and intended to strip them from their personality and humanity.

This generator sticks to the latter as those are the onse used most commonly in works of fiction. The names are mostly descriptive and meant to "remind an enslaved of its place" as far as the oppressor is concerned, or of what he or she is to this oppressor. 'Maggot', 'Lowborn', 'Beast', 'Filth' and so on. Obviously this doesn't reflect who they truly are.

The last 5 names are combinations of 2 words. These names work great as both names and as a way for the oppressor to curse at the enslaved. "Bottom Crawler", "Baseborn Bastard", "Lousy Insect" and so on.
