We've generated millions of names for hundreds of companies and individuals! We can provide test data in several formats (including MySQL, CSV, tab delimited, and Excel) absolutely free through our Order in Bulk page.

Wow, um, a program to do that could take dozens of lines of code!!!

This is excellent, if a bit shady. It even generates credit card numbers and soc secs.

Are they joking?

"Ronald P. Hollingsworth" sounds too made-up.

I knew a guy named Remington Justice Stover Stone III. Sometimes real names sound made-up, so a made-up name that sounds made-up actually sounds real.

I...uh...something like that.

um *they are*. real names are made up. by parents, for one.

The only difference between a real name and a made-up one is that you didn't just spend 6 hours in labour.

The Most Reverend Peter Hollingsworth was Australia's Governor General for a while recently.

Then he got caught up in a kiddy-fiddling scandal.

How do you really know if the names generated on the site aren't genuine and everyone you've ever met in "real" life has been lying to you?

Donatela! It's me, Diastematic. I lived down the street from you on Squirrels Heath Road in Fairport back in 1975...'member?!

Oh come on,
Dixie J. Hobbs
3499 Confederate Drive
Clayton, NY 13624
Mother's maiden name: Rosenthal
Yes, a woman named Dixie would like to live on Confederate Drive, but you wouldn't find that street in NY and her parents wouldn't be Jewish.

[ Whoops, there is 1 Confederate Drive in NY. However I challenge anybody to find a Jewish person named Dixie. ]

BTW, what is there to prevent info acceptors from running the address through Google Maps?

Wow. I looked again at that NY Confederate Drive map. That street is nestled right next to Grants Dr, Lee's Ln, and Sherman Hill Rd. Maybe some Southern born sub-division developer was trying to counteract the evil generated by a street named after Sherman.

Hm. The Calgary addresses don't parse correctly (an address without a quadrant is useless) and the coder seems to think Whitehorse is in the Northwest Territories.

Why do so many of us have the middle initial "J"?

posted by The corpse in the library at 9:05 AM on June 8, 2007


If anyone's still interested or curious, these addresses are completely fake. I got a batch of 10,000 US addresses, ran them through address verification software (I work for the company), and got the results. 99% of these addresses do not correspond to real addresses. The 1% that did were lucky guesses.

So no worries about privacy.
