Online mode is no longer available, because of FakeNameGenerator's updated Terms of Service.
I may add support for it in the future.
Generate a full name and possible occupation based on gender, nameset and country. I see some people are getting confused on what this does; but, it's just a random name generator to give you ideas and it doesn't replace in-game names.
If the application cannot access the Internet (fakenamegenerator.com) it will switch to Offline mode so it will still be usable.
Make sure you have .NET Framework 2.0
installed to be able to use it.
Report any problems and suggestions you have.
You could probably run this software on Mac or Linux. Just install and run the program under Mono
and post in the comments if it works for you
