Robot name generator




Been playing around with those cutesy, random name generators that are ubiquitous these days.  The one I have been on most has been the Giant Robot Name Generator.
The page owner describes the app like this:

"After hours upon hours of feverish research, I have determined that most Japanese giant robot names follow basically the same pattern--three syllables with an optional prefix or suffix thrown on for interest. With this simple PHP script, now you too can randomly generate a proper super or real robot name. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to see how else I can ensure that no girl will ever come near me again."
My kind of guy.  Thinking that it might help me decide on a flashier name than "Jondroid" for when I merge into a robotic body, I gave it try.
The page allows you to select what form of robot you wish to be: super, real, or awesome.  With an option like "awesome," I can't imagine wanting to select anything else.  Nevertheless, I gave the generator a try on each setting.  I embarked upon my cybernetic journey with the selector set to "real."  Here were my choices:

Mechanical Robot Dalkew
Inviolable Battler Gelgern
Armored Frame Grungern
Guard Frame Tekgern
Resistant Suit Zolgern

Hmmm.  "Resistant Suit."  Has a ring to it, eh?  Then again, "Mechanical Robot" is more of a direct concept that Joe Six-Pack would best understand should I need to make an introduction of myself.  Let's try "super:"

Valgaision X
Gaogergar V
Steel Raidangern
Chougaozam the Brave
Iron Comgaigern

Meh.  Not really impressed with any of those.  And I need to be.  When my consciousness is uploaded, I don't want it going into anything that I can't pronounce...or not know the meaning to.  Well no use beating around the proverbial bush anymore.  Set selector switch to "AWESOME:"

Steel Gaidanlant
Hulking Gairyugern Robo
Gaoryumos V
Gairaidam
Gungainphon

Those are no good, either.  In fact, I think calling them "awesome" is overstating things by a bit.  One more Hail Mary generation:

Robotic Battler Gonhawk

I have to say, that's my front-runner at this moment.  Of course, that's certainly subject to change.  Try the generator out yourself and let me know your name(s).

  2. This is cool, but the Wu Tang Clan name generator is better. http://test.recordstore.com/wuname/wuname.pl/wuname.pl
