Alliteration Generator

Update 1: It appears the generator at the link is no longer working. It’s a shame, because it was a fun little tool when it worked.

Update 2: Here is an alternate link that does something similar – and it works!


Like to alliterate? Try out the free Something of Something Alliteration Generator. One practical application could be for preachers putting together three-point alliterative outlines for their parishioners. (That’s six “p” sounds in a single sentence. How many can you do? Pick a letter, any letter.)


  1. Matthew Morehead says:

    I need this for my english class.

  2. Ray Fowler says:

    Matthew – I’m glad you found it useful.

  3. Richard says:

    how do i use it?

  4. Richard says:

    nevermind thx

  5. Kathy says:

    Yes how do you use it?

  6. Ray Fowler says:

    Here is how it is supposed to work: You type in up to four words, the program checks the thesaurus for synonyms and returns alliterating matches. Unfortunately, I just tried it and it doesn’t seem to be working right now.

  7. tegz says:

    i tried it and personally i think it doesn’t work at all. Don’t use it.

  8. tegz says:

    Seriously, don’t.

  9. Ray Fowler says:

    Tegz – I don’t know, I just checked and it seems to be working again.

  10. Jefe says:

  11. Ray Fowler says:

    Jefe – It’s there, just click the words in blue in the post above.

  12. Nicole says:

    The link doesn’t work :/

  13. Zach says:

    Yes, the link is broken.

    Ray: Try it again now, Zach, it’s working.

  14. julia says:

    the link works but the generator doesn’t. the words don’t come up matching the four words i put in

  15. jake says:

    duh fu is this supposed to do?

  16. JJ says:

    This makes no sence to me. Can u help?

  17. I have a sentence generator that takes your name and generates a sentence.

  18. JBW says:

    Very useful, but it’s been down for a few days.

  19. Joel says:

    Greetings. Loved it (emphasis on the “loved”) Haven’t been able to use it. Haven’t quite found anything like it. Will it be up and running again? God bless.

  20. Ray Fowler says:

    Hi Joel, I loved it, too. Unfortunately it is an external site over which I have no control. So, unless the site owner makes a fix, it looks like we’ve lost it.

  21. maddi says:

    I just went on it and I need a alliteration generator before tomorrow are there any other alliteration generators I could use?

  22. Bodikai says:

    Ray, may I ask how you created it? It’s such a fun and useful tool that I would love to look into re-creating it if it’s not too complicated.

  23. I made a website very similar to this synonym finder. It does the same thing but it will limit to only the letter you want.

  24. Batman says:

    This is stupid and DOSE NOT WORK!

    Don’t even try.

    I’m Batman!

  25. cat says:

    it doesn’t work for me

  26. bob says:

    is this alliteration farce, and bad farce.

  27. Sienna says:

    I dont understand how this website works, can someone help me please?

  28. Leetcat says:

    @Sienna. The website does not work any more. But you can try out the site I made to do the same thing.

  29. @ Sienna I have also published a similar site in Spanish Now if you need to find alliterations in Spanish this website can do the same thing for you.

  30. umar harith says:

  31. madison says:

  32. Person says:

    This is horrible!
    Why isn’t it working?!??!!
    I hate it!

  33. Jessica Keen says:

    this is the worst I need a complaint

  34. Bianca Gray says:

    Why cant i generate words? this sucks

  35. George Dorn says:

    Hey, I’m the creator of this. I wrote it a long time ago, back when the web was simple and I could scrape synonyms off easily. Over time, they made their site more and more complicated and every time they changed it, I’d have to update the code. Along the way, I stopped coding in PHP. Eventually, they changed something significant in the site structure making it nearly impossible to scrape anymore, so that’s why it still doesn’t work.

    Maybe someday I’ll rewrite it in Python with a better scraping library, maybe even build a db of synonyms so I don’t need to scrape anymore.

  36. Ray Fowler says:

    George – Thanks for the update, and thanks for originally creating this back then. I know I and a lot of others truly benefited from it.
