News: New Resources for Writers

Over the past few weeks we’ve been working to create several new resources for writers, specifically name generators. These new name generators are designed to help science fiction writers and role-players easily create names for the alien characters, spaceships and star systems that feature in their stories and games.

You can find the new name generators in the menu bar above (Writing Resources –> Name Generators) or by following the links below.

We hope you find these new tools helpful.

Star System Name Generator

The SciFi Ideas Star System Name Generator helps science fiction writers and role-players create names for the star systems they use in their stories and games. The generator displays both randomly generated fictional star system names and the names of real star systems. In the case of some real star systems, basic information is provided (such as star type, alternate names, and distance from Earth). Refreshing the page will generate a new star system.

Example: Epsilon Indri System

Spaceship Name Generator

The SciFi Ideas Spaceship Name Generator helps science fiction writers and role-players create names for the ships that feature in their stories and games. The generator randomly displays names from a database of currently around 600 spaceship names, but the database is growing all the time. Some ship names are also randomized to create a larger number of unique, randomly generated outcomes.

Example: The Winston Churchill

Alien Name Generator

The SciFi Ideas Alien Name Generator generates random alien names for writers and role-players to use in their stories and games. Creating names for your alien characters can be tricky, but with several hundred thousand possible outcomes, you’re sure to find this generator useful.

Due to the random nature of this name generator, not all of the names generated will be useful, and some of them are pretty stupid. For that reason, the generator will display three names at a time, making it easier for you to find a name that works for you. Simply refresh the page to generate three more random alien names.

Example: J'Foruzoss
