English-Based Place Names

These names are based on village and town names found in England, a variety of quirky naming patterns from Cornwall to Kent, Yorkshire to Herefordshire.

It is also easy to create your own by combining elements from names you like. North Longshaw becomes Little Longshore, or Warlaw becomes Exlaw.

Some names may also suggest names of nearby settlements. A village called Lower Lanrock may have an Upper Lanrock, Higher Lanrock or West Lanrock nearby

For more names there is an English Place Name generator at Chaos Gen. There is a pdf of these and more tables on Drive Thru RPG as 200 English-Based Place Names.
