What is this tool?

Do you need a cool sounding Roman name for a character in your story? This generator randomly combines the three parts of ancient Roman names; the first name (praenomen), their clan name (nomen), and their family name (cognomen) to create completely custom names.

You will find that female names generated here mostly do not contain praenomina. This is because as Roman society progressed praenomina became somewhat phased out for women and was typically used only to differentiate sisters.
