This generator of names will send You 15 random names for necropolies and similar settlements. Historically, Necropolis is a large cemetery with graveyards and monuments. The Greek 'necropolis' after all means 'place of the dead.' This generator focuses on those towns, but why not check out the name generator of the graveyard if you're searching for cemetery names? However, depending on the type of names you are searching for, these names can likely also be used for the more common necropolises. Necropolises appear to have dark and sinister names, some of which have hard tones, other times with more guttural tones. These patterns are the basis for the names in this generator, so you find several names that fit the most common forms, as well as a few extra elements that we think suit well. We did not include names like Blightown because they were already part of the ghost town name generator, but if you prefer those names then the name generator is probably the one to begin with.

The Ancient Greeks, having a love of art and architecture, built a vast necropolis - or ancient cemetery - called Necropolis in their city, Athens. The term originally referred to the city of the dead, but came to include tombs of all dead people and animals, which were then interred in the tombs of their ancestors. There were many tombs throughout the city and each was built of marble or onyx, as well as inscribed with poems or verses of poetry and a poem called the Funeral Oration, describing what had happened to the deceased during his or her life. The word "necropolis" itself was derived from the Ancient Greek term, demos, meaning "no place", or "no tomb". In Greek mythology, Necropolis was the city where the souls of the dead were kept before the city of the living was created. Necropolis was also the location of burial rituals such as mummification and cremation, as well as the site of the Olympic Games and the meeting of the gods.
Necropolis was large - the largest city ever built by man - and therefore it was divided into many districts. The first district was the area where the deceased had been buried. After the person's funeral, the remains were taken to this district and placed in one of many tombs in a large cemetery that surrounded the city. Some of these tombs would be very ornate, with statues of the deceased in the interior. Others would be simple stone monuments - perhaps carved from marble. As the years passed by, the area around the cemetery would become more crowded and the tombs would be erected in smaller numbers. When the area was finished, it would be opened up to the public for viewing and pilgrimage.
Necropolis was not always open to the public and was reserved for the wealthy and elite, and hence was only accessed during the ancient period. However, in ancient times, Necropolis was open to visitors and included many tombs of notable people, who could come to pay homage to their departed loved ones. In fact, some of these tombs would be visited by the members of the local populace who were interested in learning more about the dead person. Other visitors, including travelers, were just curious onlookers who wanted to see the remains of the deceased. There are some tombs that have pictures and mementos in the inside, such as votive candles or small figurines of the deceased.
