Database developers may need a list of names to stuff into a database during testing. That makes sense. A list of fictitious names is easy enough when all you need is, say, a dozen. What if you need a few thousand names? For that, you need this app.
Names On A Roster
If ever there was a one-trick pony app, it’s Roster. All it does is generate a list of names. Ten names? Check. 1,000 names? Check. Need more? Check.
Roster delivers a list of names but it’s not just names. Every app worth a price tag has a few options, and so does Roster.
Here’s an example. Select the Gender of the names you want. Select a specific first name or use a random first name to get started.
You can also add a middle name, extra middle names, and start with a specific last name (or, use that random generator again).
Then, simply select the number of names to generate and you’re done. Roster spits out a list of names to match the criteria you set.
The only problem I can see with Roster has to do with the type of names available. It’s very America-centric so if you’re living in Korea or Poland you won’t find the ethnicity you’d expect, but not bad for 99-cents.
