The worlds of possibility offered by science fiction are always breeding new genres, with cyberpunk reaching its greatest popularity in recent years. Setting a story in a cyberpunk landscape offers the opportunity to experiment with elements of the past, present, and future, all with a uniquely dystopian lens.

Good Cyberpunk City Names

To set out your grand vision for a cyberpunk city, make sure your name conveys what is unique about the place, what sets it apart from any regular city in the present day. You could include references to bits of technology, whether these are current or parts of equipment that only exist in your mind as of yet. Be sure to include a sense of gritty noir too, which can be achieved with words relating to gambling or the city’s seedy underbelly.

D&D is a creative practice for me, in which I can explore everything from the surreal to the divine. I like to use names as a storytelling device, so every interaction helps players to build a stronger mental image of the world. I hope that my articles for Codex Nomina help you have more fun with fantasy names!
