Running a game in the Old West or an alternative history like Deadlands? Here are a wealth of suitable names for characters and NPCs... many names that have fallen out of use since.
Your name is something to be cherished. But they can be difficult to come up with, especially if you are a GM with perhaps a township full of people to invent and name quickly as the characters ride into town and want to know with whom they are dealing.
So Hiram and Homer are propping up the bar in Willard's saloon... with sheriff Cornelius riding down the road in hot pursuit of the black-hatted trio Horace, Earl and Milton.
Sounds a lot better than Bob! A useful resource if this is your chosen genre of game.
