How Do You Come Up with a Fantasy Town Name?

While your imagination may be creative as can be when thinking of a story, it may not be as ready with town names.

Still, you can apply a few rules to develop the perfect town name for your fantasy novel or gaming adventure. One of the most common things you can do is rely on old Middle English or Latin vocabulary. You can take words we no longer use but sound classic.

Add a suffix or prefix to those words or play word-smash: put two words together to create something new!

How Do You Name a Fictional City?

The best way to name a finctional city is by using a town or city name generator. It is the most straightforward and inspiring place to start.

Take inspiration from the places and things around you. For example, take a look at the street names you would otherwise pass up.

You can also go after real-life cities and towns – or even different countries.

Try to mold their names to create a fantasy place that fits your story. Avoid sounding too familiar with what already exists in the massive world of sci-fi, fantasy, and myth.

What is the Most Common Name for a City?

When it comes to stories set in the U.S., the most common name for a city is Washington. Talking about fantasy cities, we often see names such as Lucky Springs, Springfield, and Orlando.

Often, city names are not copyrighted or trademarked by default.

Some fictional writers may trademark special characters or places unique to their novels. This stops others from using them and benefitting from the associated brand awareness.

While it’s wise to protect your intellectual property, not all city names are trademarkable.
