I often have to generate random names so I created this simple online utility that does it for me. It lets you generate however many random male and female names you need starting with any letter. It works in the browser and is powered by alien technology from the future.

How Does This Random Name Generator Work?
lastNames. There's also an option that lets you generate just the names you're interested in. For example, if the letter "G" is specified as the starting name letter, then the program filters the array of all names and returns a smaller array with only the matching names, such as
["Gary", "Gregorio", "Grayson"]. The generation of names happens in a
for loop that stops when the array
randomNames gets filled with the required number of names (this number is the
count value in the options). To pick a random male name from the
maleNames array, it uses the expression
maleNames[Math.floor(Math.random() * maleNames.length)]}, the same code is used for
lastNames. If you want to display just the name initials, the program additionally calls the function
maleNames.slice(0, 1), which prints out only the first letter of the name and optionally adds a dot after it. Also, if necessary, the program can convert the names to lowercase and remove spaces from the names. All randomly generated names are
pushed into the
randomNames array, and when it is filled, the program joins all the names into one string and outputs it with the desired separator character. The code that does it looks like this:
