Earthlings of Earth!

After circling your insignificant moist rock for five of your sun cycles in my celestial chariot, I have finally received orders from my superiors to join your Book of Faces.

The services provided by EXONOMA.COM, Intergalactic Exonomastics Institute of the Internets, are undoubtedly well-known to your entire population, such as it is, by now. Any Terran petitioner may request alien names from our vast cultural datapools, be it random names from one or more specific alien species or a name based on the petitioner’s quaint Human designation. Over 180 known extraterrestrial and extradimensional species are on record.

Brain probe telemetry indicates that this service is predominantly in demand with your “Geek” caste and that the names dispensed are typically used in tribal rituals such as role-playing and fan-fictioning or in the electronic fighting pits of Em-Em-Oh.

Don’t be ashamed to cast aside your Earthname for a superior appellation bestowed by your evolutionary betters. It is the order of things. You too can impress your fellow digital drones with authentic alien names – from space!

You may commence rejoicing at this time!

Third anniversary of EXONOMA

Three years ago, I started this blog. And I don’t know how many names I’ve posted since then, but here are a few facts that I do know:

  • About 850 people visit this blog every day.
  • The most popular names are Quarian and Turian names.
  • This blog looks so horrible because I can only pick different templates and I decided to switch to this uglier one because the nice one wasn’t properly displayed in Firefox.
  • If I didn’t miscount, there are 177 name generators available as of this date.

To celebrate the occasion, I’m adding a 178th – a new The Elder Scrolls name generator: Argonian.  

Leave of absence

This service is unavailable until further notice. I’m moving into another abandoned satellite so I can continue to perform exonomastics for you quaint little terrestrials while floating suspended in your quaint little sky.

Exonomastics blog kicked off

The purpose of this blog is to provide puny humans with alien names for their roleplaying or gaming purposes or whatever human beings are up to.

If you, the puny human reader, would like randomly generated names from a specific species, feel free to to leave a comment stating what species and sex you’d like the names to be, so I can fire up my miraculous space-age name generators and post the results for your query.

Alternatively, I can turn any given name into a similar-sounding alien name. For this, just state the name you need alienated and, of course, species and sex.

In the following posts, I will provide sample names for various aliens. You can check the categories on the left for posts involving specific species. The subpages, top left, provide lists of the available species sorted according to universe.
