Forgotten Realms Calendar Tool
Almost every person or race of Faerun marks the passage of days, seasons, and even years in some fashion. Most of Faerun uses the Calendar of Harptos, named after the long-dead wizard who invented it. Few bother to refer to Harptos by name, however, since the calendar is the only calendar they know. The Forgotten Realms Calendar Tool chronicles the complete cycle of days (with important holidays and Shieldmeet "leap days" included), phases of the moon -- and even names of all years in their complete and accurate form.

The naming of the years is not random, nor does it necessarily commemorate any great event or occurrence. Many centuries ago, the Lost Sage Augathra the Mad wrote out thousands of years and named them in the great library of Candlekeep. It's a rare year that doesn't see some event that seems clearly connected with its name, and most folks view Augathra's names as mysterious portents of the years ahead. After you download the Calendar Tool, unzip it into a directory on your machine and run the "index.htm" file in your web browser to use the utility off-line. The note editor and customizable notes only work with the downloadable version. An online version is also available.
The Roll of The Years from -700 to 1600 DR
Useful when you need to look up the name of a certain year.
Everchanging Book of Names
An excellent name-generating program which will make coming up with fantasy names a breeze. It's very easy to use but also very powerful if need be. On the page linked you can also download some "plugins", the most interesting ones being for the creation of Greyhawk & Forgotten Realms names. Thanks to Enthasius for bringing EBoN to my attention!

A cool application you can create literally hundreds of different characters with.
