  1. From the name generator:

    . . . for example, "Beverly" in the UK is generally considered a female name, but not so in the USA.

    Thanks for the resources. I bookmarked a couple. Here's a name generator I sometimes use, when I want a name that sounds contemporary.

    I like that you can set the gender, and that it generates fake addresses too. (Yes, all the information is fake, though it looks extremely plausible.)

    Their Latino names are laughably bizarre, though.
