When I wrote ‘Random Character Name Generators’ it was so popular I thought I’d take a look and see what other generators there are out there! Turns out, TONS.
Check out all of these too!
In this list, I bring you the best random story title generators I could find, including some of my results (and this time with pics)!
I find these really fun to use, especially during extreme bouts of the dreaded writer’s block. If you know of any others please leave a comment!
Firstly some generic book title generators:
This site immediately displays 48, yes 48, randomly assigned titles you can steal. I think my favourite from those shown below is Penny Alley.
Not one of the better ones I found but still good for procrastination or for a smidge of inspiration getting a title for your book. I liked the sound of Kissing Shores I generated.
For those of us with an interest in crime, mystery and thrillers these are some of the best generators I could find:
As you can see from the screen grab below, you not only get to state how many titles to show, it will even give you randomly assigned chapter titles if you so wish.
My favourite here has to be The Quest of the Thrashing Printer..wtf?!
Fellow blogger Tara Sparling created this fun generator based on your own name. Mine would be The Assassin’s History.
I’d say these results skew more on the side of spy type thrillers than ghosty type stories, and I think it’s fair to say whoever made this generator is probably a John Grisham fan.
My results were:
The Phantom Strain, The Corbomite File, The Pelican Imperative, The Medusa Ultimatum, The Pelican Ploy, The Reality Deception, The Looking Glass Manoeuvre, The Mu Kau Pi Ultimatum, The Prime Covenant, The Peking Affair, The Phantom File, The Kyoto Element, The Final Menace, The Kyoto Protocol and The Falcon Hijacking.
For those of you more into your more sci-fi and fantasy-type titles, these are perfect for you!
This site churns out 8 random titles at once, my results:
Laughing Garden, The Eager Moons, Creek of Solitude, The Gentleman’s Healing, The Enigma of the Angels, Lady in the Smile, The Ruby of the Red Lash and The Thorns and the Abyss.
Here are some more:
My result is shown below. Some fairly generic titles come up here, e.g. ‘fire and glory’ doesn’t really stand out to me as an original fantasy story name, but worth a shot I guess if you’re strapped for ideas!
As with #3 you can also generate random chapter titles for this one, some of which may also serve as story titles, shown below.
Let me know how you get on with these and what the generators churned out for you! Would you choose any of these as a title for your story?
