A replacement names-list (live.package) so your townies aren't stuck with the silly, boring, repetetive Maxis names...

BO-names-no-pets contains 1150 male first names, 1477 female first names, and 1844 last names (identical for males and females). This makes for a total of over 2.1 mln combinations for males, and over 2.7 mln for females. No pet names.

BO-names-with-pets is identical to the above, but also contains 1490 male and 1177 female pet names. Obviously, this one requires Pets!

Obviously, you install only ONE of these files, depending on whether you have Pets installed or not.

Nothing original: I took the names lists made by some of the great names (Jordi, CuteLilDeadGirl, HystericalParoxysm, among others), combined them, sorted the result, removed duplicates and compressed it.

Update, July 28th, 2011: added 7 female first names and 18 last names. Also removed some excess data, making the package a lot smaller.

Major Update, July 29th, 2011: I went a bit out of my way to add as many names as I could find, including Scandinavian and middle-European names. This mod now includes 2,823 male and 2,727 female first names and 5095 family names, making for a total of 14,4 mln combos for males and 13,9 mln for females... Yeah, that's right: there's a total of over 28 mln combos in there!

UPDATE, January 3rd, 2012: Sadly, a slight error in the file caused some names to be merged. This has now been corrected. Re-download is recommended to all. My apologies for the inconvenience.

UPDATE, October 23rd, 2012: Another upgrade, increasing the male first names to 3377, female first names to 3247, and last names to 5693. As a result, the total now comes to 18.5 mln female, and 19.2 male combos. Yes, a whopping 37.7 mln combos in total.

I've used quite a few mods by others, thus taking FROM the community. With the work that *I* create, I'm hoping to give something back TO the community.

Do with my work whatever the &#$% you like. If you re-use, edit and republish my work, I consider it a compliment. Especially if you let me know about it, and mention me in the credits.

But, although I would *appreciate* the note and the credits, if you choose to be a dick and act as if YOU created my mods, there's not a whole lot I can do to stop you, so I won't even TRY.

Thanks for this - so I just bung it in my DLs folder and no more Goopy?

Well, NEW townies - created AFTER installing this package - will NOT be named Goopy or GilsCarbo. Also, townies that use fixed names (same name every time you restart the hood) will not get new names with this file.

Thanks for this. The mod I use now gives me too many animal names as surname, I hope this fixes it.


Sorry, that is a members only option
