The key to creating a good pirate name is to start with a simple, yet expressive adjective, such as skinny, big or silly. Then add a similar sounding name after your chosen adjective. For example, Stinking Pete or Silly Shelly. Another way to come up with your own pirate name is to think about some pirate or sea-related terms, such as tide or skull. From these terms, we could come up with the following names, Old-Tide Sammy or Davey Dark-Skull.  Try these two techniques for yourself and see if you can come up with any creative pirate names!
