This might be the nerdiest of all lab projects, but hey, I’m a big nerd. Wanna make somethin’ of it? :)

I found some nice written resource about how to generate elf names from a variety of stems & roots with different meanings. The spreadsheets were extensive and I said to myself, this should be automated! Tada, now it is.

Take a look at the XML file and you’ll see you can define the way the strings are generated. I also have a little check in there to avoid doubled letters in combinations of things like “ade” and “ele”. That should make “adele” not “adeele”, and now it does!
