Looking for good naming guidelines, generators, and the like

I've found a few pretty generic name generators, but I was hoping there might be more species specific name generators out there. Even naming conventions for the races would be great. Wookieepedia has good species history, but is a bit lacking when it comes to names.

That could be because there aren't conventions for some of the species, of course.

Thanks all.

I'm not aware of any decent generators, but I'd recommend going to http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page and looking up whatever race you're thinking of playing.

Chiss, for example, is one that may be difficult to come up with a name that suits the species, so a few examples from http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Chiss are:

Mitth'raw'nuruodo
Baldarek
Sev'rance Tann
Kung'urama'nuruodo
Chaf'orm'bintrano
Prard'ras'kleoni
Fehlaaur'aitel'loro
Jer'Jo Cam'Co


...just clip out chunk of them and mesh them together and you'll have something that looks and sounds like a Chiss name, but it utterly unique: Sev'raw'kleoni, for example.

More work that pressing "generate" but probably worth it.
