Neural network names guinea pig "Evil Bee"

I just found these amazing posts on naming guinea pigs… they programmed a neural network to come up with good names.

And one of the names was “Evil Bee”!

Now we just need one to name bunnies for @shanaqui.



I was previously generating text with markov chains and I quickly compiled a list of guinea pig names myself and… I think it’s wanting to tell me something:

Running phd.sarkov.Petnames 

With a bit of tweaking though and nicer output:

  • Ckers, Mper, Denia, Orice, Stotle, Fket, Kass, Nkie, Annah
  • Opatra, Tons, Onut, Mony, Mine, Ckie, Tercup
  • Ison, Rro, Ost, Nshine, Rious, Dilrus, Vann, Bran, Umpearl, Arisy
  • Ooteddha, Uffbal, Vanill, Arison, Ghtnin, Ockerry, Ackie, Pluto, Gnolia, Bailey
  • Cotton, Zzable, Ackie, Ootein, Dilrus, Pluto, Ndelion, Eopatra, Stubby
  • Ifkerro, Ystawny, Uebenjy, Lightnin, Brundewey, Nsteddy, Stelion, Undewey, Fuzzable, Umpetal
  • Persephone, Alfalfalfa

So I let her rip and you can see how later generated names tend to get longer and longer because given the small training data set it is harder and harder for the algorithm to come up with a new name :slight_smile:

There is some fun ones in there such as

  • Cococoal
  • Arcocookie
  • Starbuddha
  • Vaninjamin
  • Starcomet
  • Gnollicoa
  • Arconuzzy
  • Conut

@shanaqui you finding any to your liking? :wink:


I didn’t want to keep this marvel of uselessness to myself so I threw in Scala.js and put it on Glitch :slight_smile:
It’s not really optimized and uses a very naive and brute-force-y kind of way to find new unique names that is best not looked at too closely.

So, here goes nothing:

I love this! Cococonuzzable is my favorite. :heart_eyes:


So it turns out that neural networks, among their many talents, can come up with awesome names for guinea pigs.
