Chicago Suburb Name Generator

Chicago Suburb Name GeneratorThis page generates a random name for a fictional Chicago suburb (although occasionally it stumbles upon a real one). If you’re from Chicagoland, you’ll swear you’ve heard of it, but just can’t place where it is.

It uses jQuery to piece together prefixes, syllables, and suffixes that are often used in Chicagoland town names, such as nature/prairie themes, local historical persons, and Algonquin native american word derivations.
