Book Title Generators: Free Tools to Help You Pick a Winning Title

Book-Title-Name-Generators

Coming up with a good book title or book title ideas can be maddening.

They’re super critical to your book’s marketability and yet sometimes the right words just don’t pop out of thin air.

Don’t worry, most authors suffer from trying to come up with good names for books and usually go straight for their next cup of joe, glass of wine, or bottle of vodka in order to search for a little extra creativity.

In the past, I have spent hours toiling away with my notepad coming up with a list of potential book titles, only to feel as though they were all missing the mark. The perfect title that holds strong creativity and marketability can be as elusive as an honest politician.

But thankfully, we no longer have to go it alone because there are some incredible tools, like novel title generators, that I have found to help me with just that and I’ve listed all the best by their genre specialty below.

In this article, you’ll learn about:

  • What a book title generator is and isn’t
  • The best free book title generators
  • Other tools to help validate your ideas
Bonus: Download my personal guide on creating book titles that increase sales, and discoverability on Amazon.

List of Book Name Generators

The funny thing about random book name generators is that many of them are niche specific – which is a good thing.  Let’s face it, the typical sentence structure and word lexicon for erotica book titles are completely different than sci-fi…or let’s hope.

Therefore, using one type of random title generator for all kinds of books is a bad idea.  So, to help you get the most out of a story name generator, I’m going to present a list of devices/services that have a specific setting for a particular niche/genre.

You might notice that a couple are mentioned multiple times.  That’s because some of these title tools allow you to just click on a different genre.

Fantasy Name Generators

Sci-Fi Title Generators

Horror Name Generators

Romance Title Generators

Mystery Novel Title Generators

Non-Fiction Title Generators

But nothing beats a Title that shows exactly what people are typing into Amazon.  The best Non-fiction title is the one that uses the words of the customer.  In order to figure out WHAT people are typing into amazing, make sure to learn about Kindle keywords, or use a special tool that will pull this information for you.

Other Types of Book Title Generators

As you can see there are all sizes and shapes when it comes to title name generators.  Just remember, these are best used to help with book title ideas and can help shape how you create your ultimate book title.

Found One? Now What?

So, you just checked out some tools that will get your creative juices flowing, but wouldn’t it be nice if there was something to help you figure out if the book title was marketable and would stand the chance of selling well?

Well, the super cool peeps at Lulu did just that.

They created a free tool that will grade your title based on its likelihood to succeed. To create it, Lulu and their team of statisticians studied a list of the best-selling titles from 1955 to 2004 and ultimately bottled up that success into a super cool tool, the Lulu TitleScorer.

All you need to do is type in your title, help give it a running grammar start, and click “Analyze My Title.”   Then the tool will go through its records and give you a score ranging from 0-100 on the likelihood of success.

Now, if only I could remember the difference between an abstract, concrete and proper noun…thank goodness for Google.

Got Some Good Book Names? How About Testing It!

Now that you’ve used some creative book titles tools and even checked it against a title analyzer, how about testing it with your market?  Some people will go to Facebook groups and ask, but most of the time this comes from random people that aren’t even your target market.

Instead, I personally like using PickFu.  This survey service, will take your potential book titles, find the target market for you and have them vote on which one they like.  Not only will you get to see which one is the best of them all, you’ll get some key insight into why your target market loves one over the other.

Basically, PickFu takes the guess work out of it and gives your data.

You can even see how I used Pickfu to test a book description for the famous book Battlefield Earth.  Unsurprisingly, my book description helped Galaxy Press double their conversion rates and make more sales.  So, test, test, test…or else you could be losing out on book sales!
