How do you normally do it? So far I make orginal names, but recently I have looked to old languages, such as latin and Gaelic ( What Celts would speak ). I prefer orginal names most of the time, but recently now I find it better to take old language words and tweak, or sometimes they give me inspiration. How do you come up with names of people places etc in your games?

I use markov chains for random name generation. The dataset comes from breaking down names from existing cultures by syllable or occassionally by letter.

In my game I'm using a mixture of real names and made up ones that I just think sound cool. I've also used a random nonsense-word generating program on my calculator to come up with some alien words, although so far I haven't used it for names. I'm not really doing anything to make words or names sound like they're all part of one language though.
