I had the same in mind as you, but it had taken a lot of time for me to explain it in a simple way. Why to reinvent the wheel? This doesn't happen at random; the sounds that are indistinguishable to someone are sounds that are 'alike' for purposes of their own language, which means they're formed approximately the same way in the mouth. Your town name generator shouldn't be constrained by magical powers of two. I guess I imagined just having some crazy lookup table. Japanese has only one voiced alveolar approximant consonant; since 'l' and 'r' are both voiced alveolar approximant consonants, they both map to that same Japanese phoneme.
The comments at the top explain the nature of the beast. Some languages differentiate a set of consonants formed further back than the 'palatal' consonants of English, and linguists also call these 'palatal. If we had a game that resembled northern Europe, we could generate phonetically adequate names -- without the need for re-defining the name generator. By analizing some Slavonic languages, I also reach the conclusion that the vowels have different grades of disapparition in different tongues. The other problem I have with a letter-based markov generator is that it is hard to add enough history to ensure you get valid pronouncable names ie, not too many consonants in a row without resulting in a degenerate generator that barely deviates from your sample set. They have a different feel to them. The syllable base is taken from Eddings and Tolkien names it still might need a few tweaks, I'll have to have a closer look at all the generated names and try to determine whether there's a syllable or two that doesn't fit well.
Ultimately, whatever direction they come from, a unique name can help you forge your public persona and set you on the path to a wild and unpredictable musical career! Last thing you need is somebody writing in your rap name and a word reference appears with the definition before your music appears. I prefer syllable-based generators, though. Fricatives impede airflow enough to cause audible friction. Please take all necessary steps to ascertain that your new name has not been taken by a real world entity before using it. Here's a table of English consonants: use a fixed-size font. Since this is silent, the consonant is formed when air is released. New York, San Francisco Something you think about?

Our rap name maker is based on an advanced rules engine to give you personalized results superior to anything else on the web.
But as I said before, I would leave the foreign phoneme as it is, to keep the spice. It doesn't bother me, as really foreign languages don't transliterate well into the latin alphabet. But in fact, they are very clever poetry with all sorts of snazzy features like internal rhyming. Now, generating race-dependent names might be trickier dwarves, elves, orcs. Same happens with Spaniards and Portuguese the Portuguese don't bother putting subtitles to Spanish movies, the Spaniards don't understand a word of what a Portuguese might say. It uses a very simple finite state machine to select between individual letters in a fashion that creates pronouncable player names. You can enter a word of your choice, and then combine it with other random words to see what you end up with.
The last post in that discussion addresses this by layering an additional restriction, essentially prohibiting triple consonants. This was problematic in the early days of computing and internet, so alternate systems were developed. Anyway, different languages have different sets of consonants, some the same consonants that English has and some not. Your name ought to speak to who and what you are decently well. With my name generators I extract the transition tables from name lists of different languages. Rules like these would have to be regarded by the name generator properly when combining phonemes.

Next time you need to sign up, why not try for something other than jonno234 or bill533? A longer sample set is needed if the names are short. But instead of a sudden release of air, it transitions into a fricative. All this is supplemental information provided by a confessed hardcore language geek; actually using it in a roguelike game would please hardcore language geeks the world over, but is probably a lot more work than gameplay justifies.
Your stage name can also come from your childhood, as it did in the case of Waka Flocka Flame aka Juaqin James Malphurs , who used the 'Waka waka' catchphrase of Muppet character Fozzie Bear as inspiration for his stage persona — and this was also true for Macklemore, who named himself after an eccentric superhero called 'Professor Macklemore' that he originally created for a high school homework project. Please keep your input family friendly. The restricted choices mean sounds that are lost or distorted have only a limited number of ways to be resolved; in context rarely more than two. Almost always, sounds that get confused will be sounds adjacent to one another in the above chart. Some of our tools actually invent names, generating examples that are completely unique.
