There’s hardly any dialogue in Mad Max: Fury Road, so you’d be forgiven for not knowing the names of most characters. You probably got Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron), Max, and Immortan Joe, but for the rest we highly recommend going over to IMDb and reading the full list of names. It’s definitely worth it.
Toast the Knowing. Rictus Erectus. The Doof Warrior (that’s the flaming guitar guy, by the way.) Corpus Colossus. Slit. Every character has an awesome name, yet another indication of how much backstory and work went into the two hours of movie George Miller plucked from 480 hours of filmed footage and 3,500 storyboard panels.
This Twitter account has spent the past few days handing out Mad Max names to anyone who tweets at it, and the results are just as good as you’d hope.
Unfortunately for anyone who didn’t get in before Sunday night, Nomenclature Joe of @MadMaxNames appears to have retired already. Popular demand became very popular in the last few hours, possibly demanding too many names for one person to handle.
THE SHOP IS CLOSED.
Name Town is disbanded.
The War Rig fueled.
Goodnight, dear Warboys. I’ll have some parting words for you tomorrow.

@MadMaxNames hinted he might be back for more when the movie comes out on home release, but in the meantime, witness his passing and take heed of this tweet:
Promise me this, Warboys and girls: when old Nomenclature Joe is gone, you’ll mine my archives for Roller Derby names.
