=====
The project I'm working on now is a large database in which names of
people are entered. I've been using the phonetic alphabet to come up with
names, such as

Alice A. Alpha
Barry B. Bravo
Charlie C. Conners
Delta D. Dann

The names are real-looking enough to reflect real-life entries, yet if I
do happen to hit on a "real person's" name, the technique is obvious
enough that most people will realize the "real" name was by chance and
not intentional. (Did I just really write a 40-word sentence?! Sorry
about that....)
