From time to time, we need to generate sample names to populate a test database – usually just requiring first and last names, plus maybe a fake email address.
This helps us to soak-test projects where we expect a large number of users to be using a website concurrently.
Select a category, and click on the "get usernames" button.
You'll notice lot of these random usernames probably have too many characters to be of much use to you.
Apparently, people really want help in coming up with unusual names for their book clubs. Is it weird to fangirl over a cheap literary device? How many times have you seen that picture of the bar called “Tequila Mockingbird?

I think the best combinations of usernames are generated when you have something like "emotions" or "adjectives" for the first category, and then pretty much any other category after that...
If that's the case, I think they're a lot of fun anyway, as it's interesting to see what results you get when combining random words together, in a strange and seemingly random fashion.
I love playing about with these combinations as I like the silly suggestions that are created.
Just make sure you copy all your female names from that list before you leave this page.
