The Gimmick Name Generator

Given the information below, this program will generate four gimmick names: your Jedi name, your Jedi alternate name, your soap opera name, and your porn star name. I have no idea who came up with the algorithms, but they have been floating around on the net for a while. In certain cases you may get Jedi 2.0 names as well, where I modified the Jedi algorithms to handle consonant clashes.

None of this information is retained or used for any purpose other than generating these gimmick names. But if you really feel like volunteering more personal information about yourself, please enter your social security number and any other relevant information such as credit card numbers or PGP private keys here:



Thanks! Enjoy...

First name:
Middle name:
Last name:
Mother's maiden name:
First pet's name:
Street on which you grew up:
City in which you were born:


Seriously, though, if you are uncomfortable casting that sort of information out into the ether, here are the algorithms so that you may work them out manually:

Jedi:First jedi name: 1st 3 letters of last name + 1st 2 letters of first name
Last jedi name: 1st 2 letters of mother's maiden name + 1st 3 letters of city you were raised in
Jedi alt:Same as Jedi except the 1st 3 letters of your street are used rather than the city
Jedi 2.0:If applicable, same as Jedi except it extends the first segment of both names to a vowel boundary in cases of consonant clash
Soap opera:middle name + street on which you grew up
Porn star:name of first pet + mother's maiden name
