This week’s Scrivener Saturday: Name Generator!
TIP #2: Scrivener has a nifty built-in name generator. It’s not as great as some websites out there, but in a pinch or in a place with no Internet, it’ll do. Just go to EDIT–>WRITING TOOLS–>then click on NAME GENERATOR. Check out the screenshot below to see the details. You can pick genders, nationalities, forenames, surnames, etc. (Click on the image to view it larger.)What I love about this feature: The fact that you can pick various cultures and ethnicities to get your character names to fit.
Humorous bit about this feature: You can intentionally make your character names have alliteration. Bullet Bill anyone?
