Having played FM for some time, I have seen people try to sometimes change the way youth of countries works. Also, I have seen that there is a certain file(be_a_newgen) which allows one to set future regens.
Now here is the plan. I want to create a program that would, based on some user inputs, create an insane number of future regens of desired nationality, CA and PA(both randomly in a certain range). While the program itself is not hard to code(I already have a beta coded) the main difficulty is the names of regens(and perhaps cities, have to see if leaving it blank works).
So here is my question to the community: will some people be willing to create a list of possible first names and last names to help this program?
please reply if yes and then I will be posting a copy of the program here.
the format is simple:1 file for first names, 1 for last and 1 name in each line.

sure I can give you a hand with names if you want
Would also need a clubs file, I guess as I can't see the newgens unless they have the first club set.

Here is a folder with the program. It also has Clubs file for India and Name files for India and England.
The exe is pretty much self explanatory, but to really be able to enjoy this we need the community to contribute with name files. Meanwhile, here is a quick way of doing so:
1.Go to any FM savegame(where youth intake has taken place for the concerned country.
2.Go to World->your country->youth intake;
3.A huge list should appear for some month. Do print screen(from the fm menu) and save as webpage.
4.Open the webpage and use google table capture to convert it into a spread sheet.
5.Copy only the names column and paste it into a text file.
6.Open this text file with excel and select delimited. in the next window select space;
7.Finish. names should have been split. Some cases where names contain multiple words, may need to be addresed manually. Copy individual columns to separate text files and you are done.
Clubs can be done similarly.
Of course there will be better ways.
NOTE: Do not use more that 1000 names.
File names must be entered without the .txt exension.
Please test and report mistakes. Also if you make new country files, upload here.

Great. Name files can be generated by the above given algorithm, although there may be better ways. Upload any country you do here or on gthe SI forums please. Club files will be appreciated too.
If you test the program on some country(Till now due to lack of time, I have only tried with India, worked on second attempt.) please report any possible bugs.
