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.

Enjoy.

Just wondering - does this mod include Asian, African or South American names? My favourite naming mod is this one because it has such a wide variety of names...so just wanted to check before I swapped them around Smile

No, this list does not contain those, but it DOES generate over 10 times as many names as the one you mentioned, excluding duplicates! Everyone must make choices; this was mine. In my book, 10 times as many IS the greater variety...

Thanks so much for this! Names are a special hobby of mine - I read about them and collect them. It is exciting to have so many names available for my Townies. I am going through your file now and swapping some of your names for some of my favourites but I am really appreciating the depth and variety of names you have included! I've only done the female first names starting with A so far and it took me hours - there are over 200 alone that start with A!

You *could* also give me the list that you want included, and let me EXPAND the mod... In stead of *replacing* names, I'd be *adding* them, thereby making this mod even more enormous! Tongue

Sorry, that is a members only option
