Yuyu Randomized Names (Ver. 1.1)
----------------------------------------------------
-Author: yuyu!-


Introduction
This plugin will generate random names for characters in your game - which could include NPCs and Actors. It's pretty cool if you want your villagers to have unique names but don't want to sit around and think of something for everyone. Note that names are meant to sound unrealistic and fantasy-esque. These names are calculated from looking at two parts of a name, the start and the end (depending on gender). Most name parts are broken down from real names, but that doesn't mean they won't get pretty odd sometimes.

Features
- Generate a random name for an NPC or actor
- Specify names by gender
- Assign unique IDs to NPCs and use message codes to draw the name
- Can be used to randomize an actor's name before name input for some added flavor
- Change parameters to allow names to be unique (will not generate the same name twice)
-Specify how many names will be unique (includes actors first, then npcs)

Changelog

- Ver 1.1 -
- Added a parameter for a maximum # of unique names (a fail-safe for games that might generate a lot of names and trigger too many loops)
- Cleaned up code

-Added a parameter for max # of unique names (a fail-safe for the extremely rare chance that someone may generate too many names)
-Cleaned up the code

Sorry for the quick update! I'm still learning JS and coding in general. Based on feedback I've received from friends, I made the above changes. :)
