I am been playing The Sims for over a decade now and each time I play I have the same problem and that is trying to come up with good names for my Sims, especially when they have children. This has especially been the case since I started playing the newest version, The Sims 3. I can just never seem to come up with a good name when one of my Sims has a kid. Simply put, this website is a
So that is when I came up with the idea to create a program that would help me. I created a database that includes over 300 of the most popular female names, then another database with over 200 of popular male names and yet another database with hundreds of popular last names. Actually the last name database includes 1000 of the most common last names. Now any time I am creating a new SIM family or I have SIM children I can use this program to help me come up with some great names. Then I put them all together here at Name My Sim so that everyone could enjoy it and maybe make use of it.
- Female SIM Names
- Male SIM Names
- Last Names for my SIM family
- Mystical and whimsical Last Names
- Extinct Last Names
- Exotic Names
- The SIM Name of the Day
- The Pirate Name Generator
UPDATE for July 27 2018: Now we have added a Pirate Name Generator. Have fun!
UPDATE for October 22 2017: Just the Sim Name of the Day! Each night at about midnight we generate a random name, either male or female (we'll try and mix it up to be fair) and then highlight a new name each day! Oh also I fixed the broken link to the exotic names list. Sorry about that.
UPDATE for March 2017: Just added a new list - extinct last name generator! These are basically last names that are completely extinct, rare and endangered surnames.
