We are also concerned with the issue of nondiscrimination (sexism,
nationalism) and usage of real names in our documents. A series of fake
names might be useful. However, we're planning on opening a phone book for
a random first name and ANOTHER random last name. It might be slightly
biased toward "American" names, but in any major city phone book, you
should find names for an international audience.
