Can someone do a quick beautification for this. I'm new to posting on wiki's.

Hi Ritchie. To make a whole script appear in one box, each line should start with a space. I've sorted that on the article. Icey 04:27, 15 Mar 2007 (CET)

Thanks Icey, I'm still reading the help. I wish this wiki stuff was more like html, but I think I'm starting to understand it better.


I added a few additional methods to the page. Also for people using the markov chain approach, this link would perhaps be useful: List of demons on wikipedia. I'll try to find time to add all the different spellings to a list and add this to the wiki. (The list of demons on wikipedia is a bit odd, it contains a few fictional ones, but no 'old ones' from Cthulhu mythos). --Soyweiser 14:00, 18 August 2008 (CEST)

Markov Chains

I changed the code around a bit. To make it more general. The previous version crashed if you didn't have a certain startchar in the list of names that where analyzed. --Soyweiser 18:26, 20 August 2008 (CEST)

Separate the approaches

I find it a bit odd to have everything about random name generation in one place. I think this page should have a very generalised description of what random name generation is and what approaches are common, but link to separate articles detailing each approach. If nobody objects, I'll take the liberty of preparing such a division. In the meanwhile, I'll add some general info about the syllable-based approach. Mingos 20:32, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
