Name Generator

The Geeky Bit:


Several years ago I heard an author complaining about how hard he found it to come up with good names for his characters. I thought: it can't be too hard to build a name generator, I'll have a go at it!

What I needed was a source of names. After some Googling, I discovered that the UK, USA, and the EU publish census lists of unique male and female, first and last names. I downloaded the name lists, converted the text to a spreadsheet, weeded out the duplicates, and loaded them into a database.

Just click the button, and get two sets of 10 random generated names.
