John and Jane Doe

Did you know that these are the English counterparts to Max Mustermann?

In Germany at least, that would probably be a nice change from our dear Max Mustermann. Of course, there is the question of whether you should use the best-known English name for an internationally inspired pseudonym.

It's a good thing that we have a name generator for just this case, which creates as many English pseudonyms as you want.

By the way, you can use a pseudonym for all kinds of things. Books, films, but also for social media.

What do I get out of a pseudonym?

Simply put, you create a new or different identity for yourself with your pseudonym. Who hasn't wanted to do that? To slip into someone else's body for a day and remain unrecognised. This can be particularly good for social media if you want to remain unrecognised.
But a pseudonym is also ideal if you plan to publish something and want to create a new identity for it. The only difference to a German pseudonym is that an English one will of course be better understood and easier to pronounce in several parts of the world.

If you are looking for more common first names, or unusual fantasy first names, then you have come to the right place. For many more name ideas and generators, just have a look at our ToolBox.

Ten tame goats ...

One thing you should pay attention to when looking for an English pseudonym is the pronounceability of the name. Because you can't do worse than not being able to pronounce your own name. For people who have a very good command of English, or who have grown up with the language, this point should be less problematic than for others. Try pronouncing "Breann Gurley" or "Guadalupe Carden" correctly, for example.

Then rather something like "Brian Crowell", or "Carissa Hide".

Of course, you can also combine or modify generated names to create your own personal pseudonym.

PS: Our pseudonym generator is also available in German here.

This generator combines random English first and last names. This kind of name can be used as a pseudonym, for example. Or you can create a fictitious person to give a new brand an identity. This person may serve as an advertising figure or appear to be a founder, inventor or owner.

A very interesting example of this is the Simon Pure brand, whom many consider to be the mastermind behind the scenes. And every book or film requires tons of names such as Dakota Fleming or Matthew Sutterfield. Here you can find them at the push of a button.
