Many have asked for it, so the search function was added:


There are two kinds of list on the internet: is trying to provide you with large lists of names but in the same time, reliable lists, like 99.9% valid names.
We realize 100% is not possible without manual checking and when we offer you millions of names, manual checking becomes impossible.


You can use the lists of names for: virtual profiles, game characters, wordlists, online games, random name tools, fictional characters, fake profiles, anonymous accounts, etc.
The name analysis section contains: anagrams, misspells, popularity and origins and many others.


All names here are crawled from public websites.
Public means that anyone with Internet access can find them. Examples: Google Plus, Facebook, phone books, newspapers.

Those with privacy concerns should realize that we only store names and nothing more.
Asking to have a name removed from these lists is pretty much useless because of the following reasons:
  1. It's hard to prove that you are the only holder in the world of that specific name
  2. Even if you remove it from Name List, there are 10+ other sites which still have it.
