Japanese name generators

Friday I went out to dine with my colleagues on a Japanese restaurant. On the menu was sushi and Iki beers. Superb! Just need a Japanese name now.

Name generators

The Japanese name generator from the rumandmonkey.com was my first choice. The interface of name generator is simple and easy to overview, but it is a huge pain though, that the generator only generates one name at the time. And you need to use the browsers back button to come back to the name generator. Also you need to type in different names and to select boy name/girl name each time you want make a new name

The female Japanese name generator and the male Japanese name generator is much more user friendly. The user interface is extremely simple and easy to overview. Here you can generate as many names you want. Just a click the  button each time you need a new name, and the select box will remember how many names you want to generate.

Japanese names

Japanese names in modern times usually consist of a family name (surname), followed by a given name.  Japanese names are usually written in kanji, which are characters of usually Chinese origin in Japanese pronunciation.

There are more Japanese generators out there, but most of them are covered with commercials and are a real pain to use. But if you know any good ones just throw a comment. 🙂
