Roma name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random names for the Roma or Romani people. Many people will know them as Gypsies, but this term is considered derogatory due to the stereotypes attached to it.

The term Gypsy actually comes from the Greek word for Egyptian, as it was thought the Roma were from Egypt. The Roma actually are of Indian origin, but today they can be found across the world, including North and South America and Europe.
This origin doesn't mean the term Gypsy is any less offensive though.

The Roma tend to pick names based on the culture they live in, so unfortunately I haven't been able to find too many traditional names, but it does make it somewhat easier to pick a name, as a Roma in Brazil will have a Brazilian name and a Roma in Ireland will likely have an Irish name.

It's probably also for this reason I haven't been able to find many traditional surnames, as the vast majority of surnames in this generator are English.
