Chlodosind the Blood-thirsty

Merovinginate yourself with the Merovingian Name Generator.

Ever heard of Clovis (466-511)?

OK, probably not. He was king of the Franks, converted to Christianity by his wife Bathilde, and brought a good chunk of Europe under the thumb of his warlord dynasty, known as the "Merovingians." That is, until Charles "the Hammer" Martel came around, ousted the old nuts, and began the Carolingian dynasty, best known for producing that illiterate patron of the arts, Charlemagne. Anyhoo, the Merovingians didn't do much for Europe, or for themselves, for that matter.

They did, however, have one thing going for them...very funny names.
