What’s Your Pirate Name?

The kids and I got a fun pirate book recently and inside was a chart to help you find your pirate name.  Unfortunately, their chart left us a bit flat (9 out of 10 names were for boy pirates, for instance!) so we came up with our own pirate name generator.

To find your pirate name:

Pick 3 numbers, each one ranging  from 1-10 (you can use the same number more than once).

If you’d like a boy pirate name, pick a number between 1-5 for the last number.

If you’d like a girl pirate name, choose a number between 6 and 10 for the last  number.

Then find the word that corresponds from each list:

First word:

  1. Big
  2. Long
  3. Blue
  4. Jolly
  5. Red
  6. Cold
  7. Green
  8. One
  9. Black
  10. Stump

Second word:

  1. Eye
  2. Boot
  3. Belly
  4. Bottom
  5. Leg
  6. Ear
  7. Mouth
  8. Tooth
  9. Lip
  10. Foot

Third word:

  1. Bob
  2. Willy
  3. Bart
  4. Bill
  5. Kid
  6. Ann
  7. Bonny
  8. Bess
  9. Gert
  10. Sue

For instance, if your child chose 147, She’d be Big Boot Bonny.  752 would be Green Leg Willy.  333 would be Blue Belly Bart.  And so on.

Feel free to make up your own lists too!

  5. Love it! We are doing a pirate unit study and this works great for their “Pirate ID Cards”

  6. Thanks for this list! I’m doing a pirate themed 6th birthday party & want to give each child their pirate name when they “join the crew”. Some of the online generators aren’t exactly “kid appropriate”.

    I was inspired by your list and added to it… Then turned it into an Android app. Hope you like it.
