How to Create a Good One-Word Guild Name

There are around half a million words in the English language, depending on which dictionary you use. When you consider other languages, you have practically endless options when creating a one-word guild name! To narrow down the plethora of possibilities, keep the following tips in mind:

  • Choose a tone. Deciding upfront whether you want your name to be funny, dark, or intense will help you more easily whittle down your options.
  • Create a list of favorite words. Even if you aren’t a word nerd, chances are some words just sound better to you than others. Jot down a list of favorites that come to mind and pick one for your name, or look up synonyms for even more possibilities. (Thesaurus.com is an easy way to find alternatives!)
  • Use the dictionary, but take some artistic license, too. Dictionary words aren’t the only ways to make short guild names. Use acronyms, partial words, or your own unique spellings to customize your name.
  • Let fate decide! If you have a physical dictionary, open it to a random page. Or, use a word generator online (like RandomWordGenerator.com) and see what you get. If you’re overwhelmed by choice, let the universe (or AI) do the picking for you! On our test of the Random Word Generator, we got “Magnitude,” which would make a pretty cool guild name — and it only took one click to find.
