Shall we meet at Champneytree or Litchfoote? The Pseudo-Elizabethan Place Name Generator

“The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug,” so said Mark Twain. Being stumped for a good name can stymie a writer, which is why I find generators to be so useful. While a list–even a randomly generated one–is no match for a keep and clever brain, sometimes the lifeline of a made up name helps cut through the crap of writing. While I’m not a big fan of the Elizabethan era; nor quite the marketing demographic for the madcap Austin Regency age, this generator caught my eye.
