Namey! A random name generator

Welcome to Namey, your friendly neighborhood random name generator. It uses the US Census Bureau database of first and last names to generate random names. You can specify gender, whether you want a common or rare name, and so on. It's pretty easy, so... Lets make some names!

Note: If you uncheck this, you'll only get a first name.

Open Source

Namey is powered by a ruby gem. The code is totally open source, do what you like with it! Check it out on github.

I have an API!

Are you a nerd? Do you like APIs? You're in luck! Namey has a Javascript API available so you can generate names however you would like.
