Get your own "Silly Name" - ReNamer

As an amusing diversion. Have fun at work, at home, and with your club or association by creating silly names for

  • yourself,

  • your staff,

  • your family and

  • your friends.

It only takes a few seconds to get your own "Silly Name." This script is derived from a children's book called Captain Underpants and the Perilous Plot of Professor Poopypants, by Dav Pilkey. In this book, the evil Professor Poopypants forces everyone to assume new, ridiculous names.

How To determine your "new" name:

ReNamer pulls words from a database using the first letter of your first name, and the first and last letters of your last name. For instance, if your name was Bob Perry, the word for the letter B for first names is "Lumpy", and the words for the letters P and Y for last names are "Hamster" and "Brains" respectively. Therefore, your new name is Lumpy Hamsterbrains.

So... enter the letters in the designiated boxes below, and click on the Get Your New Name button. Have fun with your new names!

What is the first letter of your first name?

What are the first and last letters of your last name?
First: Last:

Be sure to complete all three fields!
