Forest Name Generator: 150+ Forest Name Ideas

Here at Imagine Forest, we’re always on the hunt for a new imaginary forest full of beautiful creatures. This hunt has led us to create this wonderful forest name generator full of magical and ancient forest names to use in your story-telling. 

Forests are a common setting in many fairy tales, horror stories and not to mention, fantasy novels. If you’re writing a story, there’s a high probability that it will feature a forest somewhere in it. Rather than just calling it a forest or the dark forest, give your forest a real mystical name that engages your readers. For the purpose of finding a cool forest name, we created this enchanted forest name generator:

Create Your Own Forest Name

Want even more name ideas for your forest? Create your own forest name with our simple and fun technique. First start by making a list of adjectives. These can be general adjectives or fantasy-related ones, such as:

  • Wandering
  • Moldy
  • Little
  • Misty
  • Enchanted
  • Magical

Remember if you’re looking to create some creepy forest names, then make sure your adjectives sound spooky, like blood or boney. While enchanted forest names call for more magical sounding adjectives, such as Whimsical or Golden. 

Then make a list of forest related nouns. We came up with the following:

  • Oak
  • Thorn
  • Pixie
  • Badger
  • Grass
  • Lake

Again forest names for horror stories should gear towards more spooky nouns, such as ghosts or bones. 

Next, make a list of synonyms for the word, forest. These are basically other words you can use instead of ‘forest’, such as:

  • Woodland
  • Woods
  • Pines
  • Wilderness
  • Grove
  • Glade
  • Thicket

Now you should have three separate lists of words that relate to forests. The very final step is to combine these three lists to create your own forest name. Here are some examples of forest names we created:

  • NorthRoot Timberland
  • WestRock Covert
  • MoldyLizard Forest
  • MistyMoon Wilderness
  • BloodHill Forest
  • GoldenBlossom Woods

Now it’s your turn to create your own forest. Give this technique a go and let us know in the comments below, what forest names you come up with. You can use the printable forest name generator sheet below to get you started:
