Create Your Own World Name

Coming up with unique fantasy world names (or realm names) can be very difficult. It’s so hard not to copy name ideas that are already out there. But we got a couple of really cool techniques to help you come up with some unique world name ideas that will amaze your readers:

  1. Adjective technique
  2. World names based on nouns
  3. Combining Nouns for ultra uniqueness

Adjective Technique

The first technique is super easy. Make a list of appropriate adjectives for your fantasy novel. Some examples might include:

  • Magic
  • Dream
  • Broken
  • Lonely
  • Ethereal
  • And so on…

Now make a list of synonyms for the word, ‘world’. Synonyms are words that can be used in place of a specific word. In this case, we are looking for synonyms for the word, ‘world’. Some examples may include:

  • Lands
  • Planet
  • Realm
  • Vales
  • Province
  • Kingdom

You could also include loose or close synonyms like woods, ocean or lake in this list. The final step is to combine the adjectives and your world synonyms. And here is what you might get:

  • The Ancient Lands
  • The Dream Empire
  • The Mist Universe
  • The Golden Barrows
  • The Ethereal Isles
  • And so on…

World Names Based On Nouns

The second technique is just as easy as the first one. Next, create a list of synonyms for your world. Here is a sample of our list:

  • Nexus
  • Sanctuary
  • Lands
  • Country
  • Kingdom
  • Reach
  • And so on…

Next, make a separate list of nouns related to your fantasy novel. Here is our example list of fantasy nouns:

  • Princesses
  • Frogs
  • Elves
  • Angels
  • Locust
  • And so on…

Finally combine the two lists to create your own world name. Here is what you might get:

  • Realm of the Warriors
  • Empire of the Locust
  • Yonder of the Elves
  • Kingdom of the Kings
  • Barrows of the Witches
  • And so on…

Combining Nouns for ultra uniqueness

Now this is the golden technique for creating your own fantasy world names. Although it may seem difficult at first, practice makes perfect. You will need to create a list similar to the one you used in the previous techniques. Here is our list of nouns:

  • Princesses
  • Frogs
  • Elves
  • Angels
  • Locust
  • And so on…

Next bring in your list of world synonyms that you created in the previous techniques. Here is our sample list:

  • Nexus
  • Sanctuary
  • Lands
  • Country
  • Kingdom
  • Reach
  • And so on…

Now comes the hard part. Take the first three characters of a random noun. For example for the noun, Angels – I will take the letters, ‘Ang’.

Take the first three characters of a random noun one more time. For example with the noun, Dragons, I get ‘Dra’.

Next, choose a random synonym for a world from your list. Take the last three characters of this word. For example with, ‘Region’, we get ‘ion’.

Combine all the letters to create your fantasy world name. We get the following world name: Angdraion in our example. It’s not bad, is it? And here are some more we created:

  • Warwitalm
  • Frokinout
  • Devbotows
  • Wareldsle
  • Golredout

And to really put the icing on the cake, you can combine the previous two techniques with this last one to come up with one mighty cool world name idea. Just take a look at these examples:

  • Warwitalm, Realm of the Warriors
  • Elvgiader, Yonder of the Elves
  • Anglosdom, Kingdom of the Angels
  • Loswarire, Empire of the Lost
  • Witfroley, Valley of the Witches

Try these techniques out yourself and let us know what world names you can come up with!
