I have found names based on real prison names although most prison names are named after the town of the town in which they belong. This generator gives you 15 random names for prison, asylums and other correctional institutes. More emphasis was on place based names and intent or subject oriented names, such as 'Time Out Penitentiary.'

What is a Prison? This is the very first question that comes to many people when they hear about prisons. A prison is essentially a place where prisoners are locked up and restricted in a number of different freedoms, under the authority of a government. The definition of a prison can vary from one jurisdiction to another, but generally the prison consists of a building in which prisoners can be imprisoned.
In most states a prisoner is considered to be in a prison only during a legal proceeding, such as a trial or appeal. However, a person who has been convicted of a crime in one jurisdiction and who has since been released from imprisonment may be placed back in a prison as a punishment. The amount of time a person in a prison can be held in confinement is determined by the laws governing the state in which the prisoner was convicted. An example of this would be a person who was arrested for DUI and was then put back in jail for a year because of his refusal to enter drug treatment. While it is unlikely a person who has been given a year in prison for refusing to go to rehab would be able to get out in an extended amount of time, it is possible. However, it should be noted that while a person who has been given such a long time in confinement will not be able to leave the facility until his sentence is finished, he will still have the ability to make telephone calls to his family or close friends, and he will be able to use the restroom and receive food supplies. However, in most cases a person who has been imprisoned for more than one year cannot leave the prison without the permission of a judge.
There are also some exceptions to the general definition of a prison. In some instances a person will be charged with a crime that does not require confinement in a prison, such as public intoxication, but in that case the individual will be held in jail pending the outcome of the case. If the case goes to trial and a judge rules against the individual, the defendant may not be returned to a prison unless the state's law explicitly states that such an extreme situation exists and that a prison sentence must still be imposed upon a defendant who has been found guilty of a crime.
