Krager’s Place Name Generator (KPNG) is a Windows utility for
generating random fantasy place names for gaming or map-making. It uses lists
of place names in various languages to generate random names that have a
similar sound to the base language.
I based the name generation logic solely on Azgaar’s Fantasy
Azgaar/Fantasy-Map-Generator) I built to so I could
leverage Azgaar’s name logic for my Wonderdraft maps without having to pick
names from random maps, with more control over generation to give a consistent
feel to a particular fantasy culture.
At a high level, it works by creating new random names from
lists of place names in another language. It split these names up to form
pseudo-syllables and then splices them back together randomly, in an order that
KFPNG supports the use of Azgaar’s language files, called “namebases”,
greatly extending the range of options available.
