In the following table you may select up to five lists for each component of a name. The "Male" and "Female" are what their name implies; the Surname lists represent the first five thousand most popular surnames in the 2000 census, the second most popular five thousand surnames, and the final entry represent the remainder of the surnames (140,000!).
To generate a set of names click on the "Generate Names" button. To add names to the "Saved Names" text box click on the little "+" to the left of a name.
You may drag any part of a name to a different location and the two will be swapped. If you only want to copy a name component then hold down the control key and the source name part will be copied to the destination name (the previous contents of the destination will be lost).
To copy the names you've saved to the "Saved Names" text area select all the text and then use your browsers copy command. You may then paste it into any other application or browser control that accepts text.
The names are generated from about 4200 female and 1200 male first names taken from the 1990 U.S. census, the surnames are from the approximate 150,000 names in the 2000 census. While I am sure that new names have arrived since these census I doubt there are a statistical number of them that would somehow make this name generator "out of touch" with today's names. In any case we use a random number generator to choose the names and so we don't take usage into account except for last names.
