Software & programming language name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random names for programming languages and other similar types of software. The names have been based on real programming languages, of which there are hundreds, but include fictional elements too.

Most names for programming languages in real life are either abbreviations (like PHP), descriptive names (like Google Apps Script), or names that often just come across as names that sound good (like Ruby, Python and Java). While 'sounding good' isn't always the reason behind these names these are the names I focused on for this generator. But I've also included elements like '+', 'Base' and other elements that might indicate a specific version of that language.

Due to the randomness of a random name generator, and because there are 100's of programming languages, the chance of finding a name that is already in use is present. It's a really small chance, but present nonetheless. So if you want something that's definitely unique, a quick Google search of the name you like should reveal whether it's been taken already or not.

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.
