Fake Data Generation.

What Brand Are You? A branding viral by The Design Conspiracy is an interesting(ish) go at automatic generation of stuff you might need to populate databases with. I already have 'human being' generators and 'UK address' generators, which emit quantities of plausible seeming names, ages, sexes, birthdays and even national insurance codes for the former - and plausible street number and name combos with real towns and county (with matching postcodes) for the latter. But generation of company names is a bit trickier.
