Name Maker Real World Volume 1- Old English

The original name maker series from Ennead Games was designed to help you generate and come up with a name for your fictional cultures.

This companion related series took the same concept and applied it to real-world names, giving you a tool for names that are more in fitting with real life or setting and games that draw inspiration from the real world.

Not every possible name will be covered, but enough will be to give you hundreds, if not thousands of possible combinations, especially if you use the middle name option as well.

This volume covers Old English, suitable for humanoids of worlds and games that draw inspiration from around 1,000 CE and that part of the world.

Inside, you will find...

  • 9 x d100 tables
    • 3 x d100 tables covering feminine old English first names
    • 3 x d100 tables covering masculine old English first names
    • 3 x d100 tables covering old English family/surnames
  • A system for adding in middle names and expanding the number of possible combinations

The bases system gives you 90,000 possible combinations and even more if you use the suggestions on middle names.

Feminine Examples

  • Bedelia Appleton
  • Haralda Cholmondeley
  • Tempest Gladstone

Masculine Examples

  • Dalbert Scarbrough
  • Milbourn Pickering
  • Stanford Wilberforce

These names are not Old English in the scholarly sense (Anglo-Saxon) around 1000 CE -- which did not use surnames in the modern sense, among other things. (I had Old English classes in grad school). Those would be names like AEthelred son of AEthelbert. These names are more like "Olde English" meaning imitations of Shakespearean Early Modern English from about the 1500s or later.

Thanks for that @John L. I almost bought this looking for the Anglo-Saxon names advertised. Do you happen to know of an index of these names somewhere?

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
