I'm planting trees with my site. This name generator will give you 10 random names for magic schools and similar institutes, though many names could be used for a variety of purposes, including normal schools. The names have been based loosely on those in Harry Potter, as those have pretty much become a standard, and their popularity means many people will be looking for similar names. However, there are no real rules for naming a magic school, and most schools in real life are named after a person. All of this is hardly a basis for naming conventions. While the names in this generator will generally sound more like Hogwarts and Durmstrang, there are plenty of different sounds to create schools with positive and negative backgrounds, or different cultural backgrounds. I've added titles to the last 5 names, mostly to help give the names a more school-style feel.
