This generator will send you 15 random Hittite names. The Hittites are people who live in Turkey, as well as in other parts of Menor Asia. The rule lasted from 1600BC until 1178 BC, but its height was around 1450 BC. Archaeological evidence indicates that their empire was also extremely large, showing how far their empire went. Thanks to Frances M, it includes almost all of the names of the Hittites referred to in historical documents, which means there are a massive number of men and women.

The Hittite were a nomadic Anatolian tribe who occupied an important place in establishing an imperial political system centered on Hattusas in northern Anatolia about 1600 B.C. The Hittite people occupied the area around modern-day Turkey, Iraq, and Israel and their presence was known to the Greeks as far back as 332 B.C. Though there are no written records about the Hittite in history, they are mentioned in the Greek and Roman literature as the rulers of a united Anatolia. The Hittite was also known as the 'father of the Indo-Europeans' because of their contribution to the genealogical records.
Although they were not particularly popular with the Greeks, the Hittite did play a major role in their military campaigns against the Romans. In fact, they would form a large part of the army that fought against Caesar in the war against Alexander the Great. The Hittite is referred to as the'mother of the Anatolians' because they were the first people to settle in this part of Asia Minor after the sea route was opened to allow passage to their homeland. The Hittite were also referred to as the 'father of the Hellenes' because of their contribution to the cultural fabric of ancient Greece. They were involved in a number of wars, including those against Rome and the Parthian Empire in the Second Punic War. The Romans, of course, were not fond of the Hittite, since they were allies of Alexander the Great.
Despite the hostility of the Romans towards the Hittite, there is still a large mound called Djezzar Tumulus in present-day Turkey where the remains of one of Alexander's statues is excavated from. It was during this excavation that the Hittite was buried, although there is evidence that they were more than this. This mound is one of the oldest examples of Hittite burial, being constructed around 1600 B.C. These findings show that these nomadic tribes took part in the political, economic and religious structures of the ancient world at a period when such things were unknown to other civilizations.
