Random Name Generator

Author File Description
Jack D P Ever had a mental blank and couldn't come up with names? Well if you have you know that it is extremely frustrating. This program randomly generates fantasy names, though some are a bit dodgy.

To install, unzip the exe and media file(Media file not necessary) to wherever you choose.

To use, press spacebar to make a new name.


*Updated 21/01/10
-Adds ' and spaces to some names.
-More name combinations possible.
-Added instructions to the program.


~Could any reviews made before the update be edited?~

Comments and reviews are appreciated.

Thanks,
Jack

Program made in Darkbasic Professional.

CharlieDog I'll agree with one thing, those names are dodgy. Some are good, though, how did you do it? You didn't use my names. :P
But I found one good one: ZOG

It places consonants on one side of vowels with spaces and apostrophes randomly appearing in names to make them more mythical.

My faith in you has sunken deeply.

Some people find it hard to come up with names. Not everyone has imagination blasting out their ears. I just thought, "Hey, I have trouble with names, so do some other people. Why not make something to help them(me)?"

Since when has trying to help other people been fail? My faith in you sunk at that :p.

Additional Comments:

User Interface - 5/5
The user interface is really simple. There is nothing that confuse your eye. No toolbar, no buttons. Just a simple DOS program.

Simplicity to use - 5/5 (was 3/5)
Even though the program looks simple and feels simple, but knowing how to use not simple because the program fails to provide instruction for people who does not have the knowledge to operate this program. There is no "read me" file in the program so you're pretty much alone figuring out what to do. At least, add read me and a simple instruction in read me or in the program. People, use any key on the keyboard to make it generate words.

Update- 5/5:
After recent update, it now include instruction inside the program when you run. No more confusion. Very simple now which is really good for everyone.

Are names good enough for me? - 5/5 (was 3/5)
Yes, and no. First, the names that the program generates is rather obvious. It creates word that starts with consonant then vowel then consonant then vowel and so on. It only creates simple random names which is okay for me. The only thing I was expecting something was single quote in some random names- like Baa'l, Teal'c, Rato'm, Yat'o, etc. but it does not do this at all, i guess, yet. At least make your program be able to generate more complex words then I will be satisfied.
Update- 5/5:
After recent update, it now includes spaces and single quotes. Beautiful. It can make words like Ba'a Iri, Ki it, Kiva, Vanu, etc.

Final conclusion:
I rate this program as 3.6 out of 5 which is rounded up to 4 out of 5. A simple program that is really easy once you know how to use it(just hit any keys). Makes simple words, strange words, silly words, etc but no single quotes or complex names

Update: 5 out of 5. Read the updates above for reasons.
