Default What Townies and NPCs (Names) have been recently generated in your town?
Hello Everyone!

As the title says, what weird names do they have? And if you want: how do they look?

I have had several townies and NPCs generated with the Hamilton surname. #Rabbit!

And another teen tourist Elizabeth Ng, she has the face template of Demi Love, the officer. I have a waiter called Knut GilsCarbo. Seriously, what is it with this family and their weird names?

So, do you also think that they are related to someone else's townies?

I believe the game has a list of available personal and surnames, most or all of them derived from Maxi's/EA's staff, which are distributed randomly when a generated character needs a name. Gilscarbo and Ku are both names on this list. So Charles and Beverly would be distantly related through the Ku who worked at the company.

You can replace this list with a custom one that suits your taste better, either downloading one (a couple are available through this site, I believe) or learning how they're set up and making your own, just like any other custom content. But if you have notownieregen you won't be getting new townies except for the ones you make yourself, anyway.

I've recently started seeing a new townie, despite having notownieregen, whose name is Betty Murphy. I think she must be a business reporter, generated when I installed OFB, because I've only seen her on the owned community lot. She's certainly not a normal townie, as I can't gussy her up with Chrisitan Love's hack; which is a shame, because she's wearing a classy sweater, orange track pants, and heels, and desperately needs it. I may put a clothesrack in my night club, just so I can suggest a new outfit to her and get her dressed in less painfully bad taste.

I've seen a townie with my own first name as well as one named Ocean McClellan...oddly enough. Ng seems to be becoming a more common name (although what kind of name /is/ that anyway? How do you pronounce it?) I've notised there are two Ivy Copurs, which is...interesting. However, I plan on getting notownieregen so these weird names will probably not take hold in my neighborhood (as soon as I can find the darn thing!)

I've got one or two things on MTS, but most of my stuff is on my main site here:

I believe Ng is southeast Asian. The Malaysian student I knew in college taught me to pronounce that as a dipthong, very roughly, by forcing air through my nose while making the mouth shape for G and not quite voicing it. I wind up with something more or less like the French terminal N. He may, of course, have been amusing himself at the expense of the earnest young liberal.

The two Ivy Copurs are Pleasantville townies. Ocean must've worked on both teams, Sims1 and Sims2, because I had Ocean as a townie name in my Sims1 game.

My favorite townie name is of course Master Vampire Count Ralph.

Well, in my town, the two Ivy's are mother and daughter, yeah, I know its weird, but didn't any of you watched the episode of Gilmore Girls, where Rory explains her weird name? Its actually the exact same name as her mother, since her mother thought "How come men get to name their sons' after them while us woman can't name our daughters after us?", something like that... So I thought that would be a perfect storyline for both of them.

Oh, more than Prof. Jesus now.

Prof. Stork, Prof. Kitty, and another will pop up since I moved in Prof. Pons of Literature.

EDIT: Prof. Beckett de Montfaucon. Huh.

While not as funny as the others, a friend had a grouchy, fight-picking townie spawn in her game with the last name of "Love." We both love Edith Love, so much so that I asked her to clone her so she could be awesome in my game as well.

A couple times I got a "Cherry Straight." At least once as a Romance sim. Sounds like a porn star name!

I'm on a new run of Helens. Three of them are new townie teens, one is a diva, one is a bartender and another is a vampire. It may be a glitch or it may be one of those statistically improbable -- but not impossible -- and therefore common, things.

Trust me, you do not want to know how many Marylena Hamilton's I have in my game. One is a townie, one a former tourist and one is a delivery woman.

I googled the name and it came up with this: http://sims.wikia.com/wiki/Nawwaf_Leelaporn Now that doesn't seem to match a headmaster, I wonder how the parents would feel about it.

That seems totally normal to me! I've already played ONE to death (literally), the second is now an adult with kids and the third is still delivering stuff...

No need to use my full name, "Selly" will do just fine.

I have a Kenji Madden in my neighbourhood. That's suspiciously close to Benji Madden from Good Charlotte.. Not necessarly funny, but I think EA are inspired by celebrities at times.

That's probably one of the most awesome names ever, and the guy who has it is a barely noticeable curly hair'd cook in Strangetown.

I also got a waiter named Langdon Asling, who is a cutie in his own right.
