My Medieval Name

Ok I saw that someone wanted to get to a medieval word generator and found this site, so I thought– cool, that’s random.  Which is pretty neato because I have always been into medieval things– so much so that my undergrad degree is in medieval/renaissance studies (italian if you must know).  However, I have a penchant for medieval Japan and just LOVE the Golden Age of Islam.  But back to the medieval words…I found this quiz for medieval ‘names’:

Your medieval name is: Magdalen. Out of conformity and inducing sexual meaning, you’re seductive and passionate, silent until spoken to and only violet when provoked. Gorgeous and mysterious, you’ve got it all.

But then I found this generator that you click on the gender and it randomly gives you a name.

Here are my results:


Male: ODON CROMWELL [wow, isn’t that a name for a tyrant?!]

cool now I am ready to do some RPGs…;-)
