An inn needs a name! This generator offers five randomly generated name suggestions for inns, pubs, and taverns. Most suggestions are based off traditional (mostly British) naming conventions.
In addition, you get three genuine names of inns, pubs or taverns from real life (mostly the UK), for inspiration. Some are of mythical origin, some offer specific services. Some are named for historical figures or events, and some are just plain funny. A few are named for the clearly mythical and never-actually-seen, such as the Honest Politician.
This generator provides a randomly generated inn or tavern name, as well as an example of an actual, historical inn somewhere in the real world.
