Dutch Name Tables

ZIP File
Page Count: 98 pages

This ebook contains names for Dutch people, which may include first and surnames of an Anglo-Saxon/Dutch, English, (some) French and/or Germanic origin but all perfectly suitable for naming a character from Medieval Holland/West Frisia, for example. Quick Statistics:


  • more than 1600 female names (i.e. 16 tables with 100 names each, plus a table with less than 100 names) more than 800 female nicknames,
  • more than 1300 male names,
  • more than 800 male nicknames,
  • more than 3000 surnames,
  • plus a section containing more than 800 place names from the Modern Netherlands and Belgium, so that if your campaign is on Earth, you can have place names as surnames, such as "Rembrandt van Rijn".


    With regards to all sample names listed: characters and names are used fictitiously. Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental. Sample names you could generate from this volume:

  • (Female names) Astrid "The Enlightened" Schravendijk, Eiisha Cornelis Geensen, Hildegond Adriaansen, Gertrude Van Kampen, Sonja "The Red" Wagenaar
  • (Male names) Tijmen Everts Ackerman, "Grim Eckebus" Ravensbergen, Alewin Weymbert Naeije, Pieter Vanderwolf Heemskerk, Jan Cornelisz Faas

    These books are rather useless. All it does is give you a list of names: no meaning, origins or whatever. You'd have better luck with a random word generator. [...]

    Original electronic
    Scanned image
    These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

    For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

    For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
    Original electronic format
    These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
