This guide is intended to help users find that perfect name when creating a new character. While you can surely name your new tribute whatever you'd like, sometimes users wish to find canon-like names that would be fitting for their new character's home District. And thus the Character District Naming Guide was born.

In the lists below, you will find all 12 canon Districts, the Capitol, and the three fan-made Districts sanctioned here on The Hunger Games Role Playing Wiki. The lists will first contain a list of jobs these Districts employ, followed by known canon names of Characters from the books and movies. Then, you will see how these Districts seem to name their citizens. And finally, you can see the names we've compiled that would fit these naming schemes. Happy character creating!
