Xianxia character title generator

This name generator will generate 10 titles for characters in Xianxia stories.

Xianxia, meaning Immortal Hero in Chinese, is a genre of Chinese fiction about people with powerful, magical abilities. Despite the word hero in Immortal Hero, not all main characters are heroes in the traditional sense. They can be or at the very least come across as merciless and arrogant depending on the story, and in some cases they are. Though the worlds of Xianxia stories are often about survival of the strongest, and any sign of weakness could end up punished.
Xianxia also takes a great deal of inspiration from Daoism/Taoism, as well as other (usually Asian) religions, which is reflected in many of the supernatural elements. Daoism is a real religion and some of its practices include improving your physical health through rituals and, in doing so, ideally achieve immortality. Those who reach immortality are called Xian.

Characters in Xianxia stories often have titles, something Jeremy "Deathblade" Bai has helped me a lot with. Those who read translated Xianxia stories may be familiar with him already, as he's translated countless novels and written some of his own.
These titles are similar to other Chinese literature, but obviously deal with more supernatural elements than their Wuxia counterparts, for example. So in this name generator you may find names like Master Many Springs, Crown Princess Frozen Heart, Swordsman Stone Pride, or Immortal 10,000 Knives. Either way, there's plenty to pick from.
Due to the link with Daoism, these names are also referred to as Daoist names, though this term can at times be confusing in relation to the religion. While they use titles in Daoism as well, those in Xianxia stories are far more diverse.
