Last night I had fun building a little random name generator for my friend Adam and my wife. They both write and sometimes it is difficult to come up with names for characters, that is where the new tool comes in handy: Character Name Generator Every time you refresh the page you get a new name 🙂 I used to code a lot of fun little projects like this but lately I have not made time for it.
