Arthurian Names from ‘Le Morte d’Arthur’

Aubrey Beardsley (1872–1898): “The Lady of the Lake Telleth Arthur of the Sword Excalibur”
This randomizer collects character names from the Arthurian epic Le Morte d’Arthur by Sir Thomas Malory. The legends of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table are not brimming with gender-neutral names or even surnames, so those options are sadly lacking from this particular name generator.



Also, the full set of initials is not available for either gender, but the full Campaign Logger table does offer the following subtable options:

  • “{female a}”,
  • “{female b}”,
  • “{female c}”,
  • “{female d}”,
  • “{female e}”,
  • “{female f}”,
  • “{female g}”,
  • “{female h}”,
  • “{female i}”,
  • “{female j}”,
  • “{female l}”,
  • “{female m}”,
  • “{female r}”,
  • “{female s}”,
  • “{female t}”,
  • “{female v}”
  • “{male a}”,
  • “{male b}”,
  • “{male c}”,
  • “{male d}”,
  • “{male e}”,
  • “{male f}”,
  • “{male g}”,
  • “{male h}”,
  • “{male i}”,
  • “{male j}”,
  • “{male l}”,
  • “{male m}”,
  • “{male n}”,
  • “{male p}”,
  • “{male s}”,
  • “{male v}”,
  • “{male w}”

You can call those subtables directly from Campaign Logger like this:

{lib:name-malorian#female f}

It is not possible to specify subtables for generators embedded in the blog, but the source data for this generator is available in the GitHub repository. You can copy and paste the .json file contents into the Generator Service text box and start experimenting with the generator. Subtables can be specified in the resultPattern string.

If you are already using Campaign Logger, open one of your campaign logs, click the cogwheel-shaped Options button, select Manage Custom Generators, then Add new generator… and paste the generator data in the text box. After you save the generator, click the Show Generators button in your campaign log to access the new generator.
