Project Description

Do you want random human-readable strings to identify things?

>>> from coolname import generate_slug
>>> generate_slug()
'big-maize-lori-of-renovation'
>>> generate_slug()
'tunneling-amaranth-rhino-of-holiness'
>>> generate_slug()
'soft-cuddly-shrew-of-expertise'

Features

  • Generate slugs, ready to use, Django-compatible.

    >>> from coolname import generate_slug
    >>> generate_slug()
    'qualified-agama-of-absolute-kindness'
    
  • Generate names as sequences and do whatever you want with them.

    >>> from coolname import generate
    >>> generate()
    ['beneficial', 'bronze', 'bee', 'of', 'glee']
    >>> ' '.join(generate())
    'limber transparent toad of luck'
    >>> ''.join(x.capitalize() for x in generate())
    'CalmRefreshingTerrierOfAttraction'
    
  • Generate names of specific length: 2, 3 or 4 words.

    >>> generate_slug(2)
    'mottled-crab'
    >>> generate_slug(3)
    'fantastic-acoustic-whale'
    >>> generate_slug(4)
    'military-diamond-tuatara-of-endeavor'
    

    Note: without argument, it returns a random length, but probability of 4-word name is much higher.

  • Over 1010 random names.

    Words Combinations Example
    4 1010 talented-enigmatic-bee-of-hurricane
    3 108 ambitious-turaco-of-joviality
    2 105 prudent-armadillo
    >>> from coolname import get_combinations_count
    >>> get_combinations_count(4)
    51560093424
    
  • Hand-picked vocabulary. sexy and demonic are about the most “offensive” words here - but there is only a pinch of them, for spice. Most words are either neutral, such as red, or positive, such as brave. And subject is always some animal, bird, fish, or insect - you can’t be more neutral than Mother Nature.

  • Easy customization. Create your own rules!

    >>> from coolname import RandomNameGenerator
    >>> generator = RandomNameGenerator({
    ...   'all': {
    ...     'type': 'cartesian',
    ...     'lists': ['first_name', 'last_name']
    ...   },
    ...   'first_name': {
    ...     'type': 'words',
    ...     'words': ['james', 'john']
    ...   },
    ...   'last_name': {
    ...     'type': 'words',
    ...     'words': ['smith', 'brown']
    ...   }
    ... })
    >>> generator.generate_slug()
    'james-brown'
