Daemon Name Generators

Realms of Chaos: Slaves to Darkness and the Lost and the Damned contain a superb amount of background material for daemons in both warhammer and warhammer 40,000. One aspect of the extensive background is a relatively large table for creating random names for your deamons -- both in English and in the gibberish "daemonic tongue". When published, these tables relied on the user rolling some die to determine the names.

These days, name determination has been very automated by computers! Indeed, there are a lot of name generators online out there if one is struggling to come up with suitable and inventive names for characters and squads. Below are a couple of links to these name generators as a little resource for myself and everyone else out there. There used to be a resource on Games Workshop's site as well (under Hordes of Chaos) but I can no longer locate it. (Apologies if you read this post years after I post it - the links may decay!)

Steve from Seventh Sanctum here - glad you found my angel/demon name generator useful!

You may also get some good results from the Evil Sounding Name Generator. It's good for more complex names:
