Namesizer - name synthesis library

namesizer

library for generating random names from the cosmos

Coming up with a unique name for your snazzy jam can be tiring, especially without a keyboard. So I created this simple library you can add to your scripts to generate random names.

Names can be created either by randomly combining descriptors and things or nonsensical names can be generated using vowels, consonants, and a little bit of spice.

Requirements

none.

Documentation

local NameSizer = include("namesizer/lib/namesizer")

local twoPartName = NameSizer.rnd(separator)
local nonsensicalName = NameSizer.new_word(length)
local twoPartPhonicNonsense = NameSizer.phonic_nonsense().." "..NameSizer.phonic_nonsense()

Awesome - This should be added to every Norns script as an option. I find naming presets a pain, I just want to press one button that autonames stuff.
