Save button fixed

Scheduled maintenance: March 6

March 2nd, 2015

The Fake Name Generator will be unavailable for a brief period of time starting March 6, 2015 at 6:00 AM UTC. We anticipate only a brief interruption in service while we update the software that runs our servers.

New responsive web design

February 28th, 2015

We’ve updated the underlying code for the Fake Name Generator website to use responsive design features. This means that our site will now adapt to the size of the screen you are using, whether you are on a desktop, a phone, a tablet, or some other device.

If you have been screen scraping the Fake Name Generator, please stop. Your existing code has probably stopped working due to changes in the structure of our site. Instead of screen scraping, please consider our free bulk ordering system that lets you get up to 50,000 identities at a time.

Found a problem? Please let us know!

Removed extra lines in bulk orders

February 27th, 2015

Some bulk order formats (such as CSV and pipe delimited) are sensitive to extra lines at the end of the file. We had an issue that was adding a blank line to the end of these files. The bulk order process has been updated to remove this extra blank line.

Cyprus (Greek) country full name fixed in bulk orders

January 24th, 2015

We’ve fixed a bug in the bulk ordering system that was displaying Cyprus (Anglicized) as the country full name when the country name should have been Cyprus (Greek).

State abbreviations and full names available in bulk orders

January 23rd, 2015

We’ve updated the bulk ordering system to provide both state abbreviations and state full names as options. This feature is available for most countries.

Name set field added to bulk orders

October 16th, 2014

We’ve added the name set field to the free bulk orders. This lets you know which name set was used for each generated identity.

Thai names now available

February 6th, 2014

We’ve added Thai names to the Fake Name Generator. We’re also working on a transliterated Thai nameset for those that want Latin characters, which we hope to release shortly. Enjoy!
