I am a huge fan of fantasynamegenerators.com. I use it for so many different things. It's obviously helpful with worldbuilding and fantasy/sci-fi writing, but I also use it for fake business names to practice logo design with, or for coming up with interesting sci-fi items to 3d model.
Anyways, that's not the point of the post. The point is that I was just looking through their list of generators and was so pleased to see that they have a "clown names" generator and a "clown names (evil)" generator. I just think that's great.
I have yet to explore the difference between the two, but their existence really made my day.
If you'd like to give them a try, here they are:
I took a peek, and the Evil Clown Names all sound specifically evil (like Chains, Poison, Lumpy, etc.), but the regular clown names don't necessarily sound not-evil (Bobo, Knicknack, Ditso, Squeaks). I think the moral of this story is that clowns can be creepy no matter what their name is.
