English renaissance name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random English names from the Renaissance period.

The Renaissance was a period of cultural and artistic rejuvenation in Europe and in England this happened from the 15th to 17th century. The Elizabethan era, in the 16th century, is usually regarded as the height of this Renaissance. Contrary to the Italian Renaissance, which focused a lot on visual arts, the English Renaissance was focused more on literature and music.

Many names used in the renaissance live on in some form to this day, though many others seem either strange, too posh or have just been altered and simplified significantly over time. They'll be easy to spot for anyone who's a little familiar with English names we use today though.
