| I made this "space name" generator to name space characters in my book.
What's your space name?
Word count: 22796
|Why don't you just generate all of the words for your book?
|I thought about it, but it makes for a boring book....
temnal = anag mental rofl
or just ignore all of them
Ga Nu (which is duch and means: Go Now!)
You gotta love that random generated stuff.
|Another piece of software we share!
Using the same kind of procedure I use to power Isabot (http://www.livejournal.com/users/isabot), I collected syllabes (instead of words) from thousands names from all over the world. Then, I recombined it with markov chains and... the result is pretty much the same. Some examples:
Oh yeah, that one has got to go in there...
Farina, pretty cool... do you pick out the syllables manually or with some other method? My names were actually generated with my 'homework' system (makes random texts based on a hand-written script), though there is also the 'froodspeak' system which learns a markov model from words (but not syllables).
|Well once you split single words into syllabes (with the 3-4 main italian rules for syllabation), the markov model will work fine. A word becomes a syllable, a sentence becomes a word.
I should try the letter-by-letter structure now...
|Right, sure, I was just wondering how to mechanically split a word into syllables. I don't know of any clean way to do it in English, although I guess it also doesn't really matter if you screw up...
|Not knowing anything at all about Markov, but being interested in random generated stuff and wanting to learn something about PHP, I cooked up a random modern poetry generator (in dutch). It relies on a few txt files with word lists in them, of which the script builds phrases.
Here it is: http://knurpslog.noblespirits.com/phpoet
|Ha, based on my knowledge of dutch (none), those are really good poems!
If you don't mind using software that already exists, my 'homework' system is perfect for this kind of thing:
It's written in C++ (the code is so bad, I apologize) and there's documentation and examples..
|OK, I'll try that... after I figured out how to compile that kind of stuff.
My knowledge of C++ is equal to your knowledge of dutch...
|There's documentation in there now about how to compile it on windows, although you need visual studio to do it. On linux or some other Unix, you should just be able to type 'make'. (Although if you want to run it you need to configure the source input directory.)
| A way to make fairly cool (and sometimes weird) space-names is to:
Take the last 3 letters from your surname.
Take the first 3 letters from your first name.
---Thats your first name---
Take the first 3 letters from your middle name.
Take the first 3 letters from the name of the place where you were born.
---Thats your surname---
Now, just mess around with some of the letters until your satisfied.
If you can remember it, it's as easy as pie :P.
Try out your name, and fiddle around with it. I beleive mine was something like 'Lesjon Scodor', and I hated it - so I messed around with it and came up with 'Laydon Scador'. Still bad but hey, it's better...
-- I probably wont come across this site again, so don't bother trying to talk to me. Hope it helps, cya around... --

|THANK YOU SO MUCH to Just Another Random guy. Your advice on how to make a space name really helped! Thanks!
|The space name generator is most definitely not working and it's making me very angry
|Sorry, I'll fix it soon!
|Thank you very much
|My friends and I are making a space show and we needed last names for people
|Yep, I love this. Here is reason to celebrate the web in all its glory. I have a fantastic space name, and... I've had a blast reading all the comments.
here are a few - based on the 'generate by using your own names' process:
We should all go by our 'space names'
