This name generator gives you 15 random names of years , months and days that are appropriate for both current, futuristic and historical environments, according to the categories from which you select. The first two names have a code name for each year (such as 5B, 8Q, etc.) and a random name for each month. This approach is also used in fictional works where the exact year is not too significant and often intended to obscure the exact year for different purposes. This masking is the reason behind the Star Trek 's star-date scheme, for instance. Names 3 , 4 and 5 have a month random name and year animal name (Fox year, etc). These names may be used in any setting but typically better suit historical settings. The numbers 6 , 7 and 8 have random names for both the day, month and year, and thus can be used in any setting, in (most) any language. The last two names have a more descriptive name, such as names 3 , 4 and 5 for the month, and an animal name for the year. These names match historical settings best, but many names can be used for anyone.
