First stop: Naming Traditions, so you know what language the names you chose will be in and what sort of name you’re looking for.
If you don’t care: go to the Random Name Generator.
Because many of the fancy new namelist-databases haven’t been completed yet (and take a very long time to finish) here are the old namelists off of the old version of the website. These will stay up until the new name databases are completed.
