Character Name Generator

When you sit down to write a screenplay, you may run into a block: what to name your next character.

Remember that character names are important. A best practice is to make them mean something about their character, or even evoking an image when you say their name. (Beware of being too on the nose. See Meaningful Name)

So, I have found a good website that has a name generator for different characters and ethnicity. Once you find one, this site will also tell you what the name means, just so you can ensure you don’t name someone inappropriately. (For the reverse of this, Google “What Names mean ______”)
