Temple name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random names for temples, shrines, sanctums and many other places of worship.

Names for places of worship tend to vary greatly, both from type to type and from culture to culture. I used 4 types of names in this generator based on real and fictional places of worship. I've included names for both good and evil places of worship, although most names can be given a different interpretation in order to make it a place of peace or evil.

The first 3 names in this generator are descriptive names, mostly for buildings of worship, like churches and mosques. These name pretty much describe what the place's purpose or theme is.
The next 2 names are similar to the first 3, except they have a name of a god instead. These god names are the exact same names you'll find in the 'God/Goddess name generator'.

The next 3 names are descriptive names for a wider range of places of worship or simply for holy aspects of nature, like a tree or rock formation. These names have more words related to nature, but they also include churches, temples and other human-made places of worship.

The last 2 names are 'actual' names for a place of worship, similar to how ancient Greece had 'The Parthenon' and 'The Erechteion'. But I included influences from far more cultures, including Japanese, Indian, Mayan and a variety of fantasy styles.
