RinkWorks - Fantasy Name Generator
http://rinkworks.com/namegen/
One of the perks of creating fantasy stories -- whether by writing a story or game or by role-playing -- is you get to make up the names. Some people relish the task while others are frustrated by it. Some like it but can't seem to create names that are diverse enough. Fantasy Name Generator is a tool that can help you. It can generate an endless number of random names (of people, places, or anything) that would be suitable for use in a fantasy setting. It can generate names on its own, or you can tell it what kind of name you're looking for. Feel free to use this tool and any name that comes out of it (assuming it doesn't accidentally generate a legally protected trademark or something).

Info on Genies appears to be limited. Their source of origin is islam, arabic holy men and the Quran (Koran). http://www.inter-islam.org/faith/jinn2.html The most common source of reference for most of us comes from "Tales of Arabian Nights", "Aladdin" and (I think) Sinbad the Sailor). There is some rumor of genie type stories that come from China but I haven't been able to locate them.
