Malaysian name generator

This Malaysian name generator will generate either 10 male or female names depending on your choice.

Malaysian culture has been heavily influenced by Islam, which is why the majority if people in Malaysia have an Muslim or Muslim-inspired name.
Some still use traditional Malaysian names, but this is mainly used in rural areas.

Both do use the same patronymic system for surnames, which means the father's name is used. In addition, either 'bin' (son of) or 'binti' (daughter of) is used.

To make sure both are represented in this generator, the first 5 names will always generate Muslim names and the last 5 names will be Malaysian names.

Do note that there's a huge population of Chinese-Malaysians and Indian-Malaysians. The Chinese-Malaysians stick to traditional Chinese names like you'd find in the Chinese name generator, but they often have 3 word names instead of 2 word names like most traditional Chinese names.
However, the Indian-Malaysians use Indian names with the patronymic system. However, instead of 'bin' and 'binti' they use the Malayan terms 'anak lelaki' (son of) and 'anak perempuan' (daughter of). The vast majority of the Indian-Malaysians are Tamil, so if you're looking for a good Indian-Malaysian name, check out the Tamil name generator and use the before mentioned terms.

Many of the names in this generator are fairly old-fashioned, which is something you may wish to consider when picking a name.
