Mecha name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random names for all sorts of mechas, like battle suits, giant walkers or something completely different.

The names have been based loosely on existing names in various works of fiction, but I've added many different elements to expand upon these existing tropes. Overall the names usually fall into 2 different categories though, as do the names in this generator.
The first, covered by the first 5 names in this generator, are what could be seen as 'type' names. These are the names usually given to a specific range of mechas rather than an individual machine. Names like 'Arctic Walker', 'Advanced Command Unit' and so on. These names usually work well as acronyms as well, similar to the AT-AT's (All Terrain Armored Transport) of Star Wars for example.

The second category, which is covered by the last 5 names in this generator, are names which work well as individual names, but could also work as type names in some cases. Names like 'Hummingbird', 'Avalanche', 'Apollo' and 'Archangel' for example. I find these names to work great for adding more flavor. For example, instead of saying "unleash the Armageddon Juggernauts" or "unleash the AJ's", you could be more specific with which one of these to unleash and say something like "unleash Nova, Oblivion and Divine Intervention", especially if these have specific pilots or people attached to them.
