    Random dungeon name generator?

    Has anyone seen an automated generator to spit out the names for old-school dungeons? I could have sworn I'd seen something like that before, but my Google Fu is failing me.

    I want to get some practice on the 5-room dungeon model by running some pbp dungeon crawls under Ptolus, and wanted to draw up a list of 10 or so pleasingly Gygaxian names.

    Any help is appreciated.

    I saw that but didn't really "catch" it until you pointed it out.

    Bravo, Ariosto.
