Pen Name Generator

Jump down to the Generator

Thank you for choosing our pen name generator! There are plenty of authors whose actual names will never be remembered, although their writings went down into history and in some cases, changed the way people think about themselves and the world. In this case we are talking about the authors who chose to sign their most famous works by pen names.
For example, George Orwell (the author of Animal Farm and Nineteen Eighty-Four) was actually born Eric Blair, Mark Twain (best known for The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, The Prince and the Pauper, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and Life on Mississippi) was actually named Samuel L. Clemens, Dr. Seuss (you should know him for such books as Horton Catches the Egg, Green Eggs and Ham, The Cat and the Hat or How the Grinch Stole Christmas), Voltaire, one of the most famous and influential philosophers in history, was born Francois-Marie Arouet and Alice Carroll (Alice’s Adventure in Wonderland, The Wasp in the Wig: A “Suppressed” Episode, A Syllabus of Plane Algebraical Geometry, Phantasmagoria and Other Poems)- Charles Lutwidge Dodgson.
Today it is hard to imagine that any of these world famous authors could have chosen any other pen name than they did. But nobody knows how much time they had actually spent thinking before they chose one and how many doubts they had. Anyway, we hope that with a help of this pen name generator you will manage to find a perfect pseudonym way quicker than they did. So how do you start looking? Just click the button that reads „Generate Pen Names“ and an original suggestion will pop out before you can blink. Pretty easy, isn‘t it?
