Hello, Worldbuilding.SE
A: How can I make names that are racially similar, yet diverse?

JDługoszYou might try a writers' forum or SE. I recall finding an online tool for generating names, and there may exist variations of the tool for ethnicity or made-up themes.

Q: Do questions HAVE to be for some greater cause?

wposeyjrI love this stack. I've just recently gotten into it and have been absolutely enthralled with the deep discussions and thought provoking responses that I've witnessed in my short time here.
