Eh, Orcs always have the best names. I got something like Ra Ga Ba Ba Ra Ra Ri Ri Gar Bag once, which I decided to cut into different syllables for your amusement.

Hey, that was just a quick list…

Yes, really weird names could pop-up, but hey; isn't that the whole point of this thread?

I, personally, think that the point of this thread is to marvel at the odd names that the Random Name Generator (same as RNG) is throwing at us.
I'm not really around any more, but you can find me in TvTropes.

I was playing TROW a harrowing escape, and i left to go to the washroom. When i got back, i found that my sister had changed everybody's name to something like Pumpkin Cheeks, and Honeymuffins. I was mad at first, until Honeymuffins kicked the crap out of a level three warlord. I still have a royal guard named Honeymuffins.

**I changed the rest though.

Next time I'm in a high stakes match I'm going to be changing all my units names to "Honeymuffin"

As you can tell, I play as Drakes a lot, and my oh my, often I have a saurian named "Jizz."

Someone needs to get these sexual references outta here.

Hey, I am in fact creating a robot faction, and that idea seems awesome, but how could I ever code that? I suppose it has to do with markov_chain_size=2 or something, but how can I differentiate between prefixes and suffixes?
