Gives every player a realistic name

This is purely decorative atm

I would really appreciate a review.

I would really like to know what you think.

From the top of my head:
  • There’s something outdated with the binary choice between boy and girl. It doesn’t necessarily reflect the setting of the server’s world build (who knows what genders exist therein). But if only sticking to the context of stock MTG, only one gender exists (the one people call Sam). Maybe just remove the choice altogether and offer to reroll name if desired?
  • The name list seem to feature ordinary US names. The community is international, so bring in names from around the world accordingly. The names have no theme to them but perhaps that’s intentional in order to fit most world build themes. But regardless of fantasy or scifi or else, who would want to name their hero “Samantha Collins”?
  • What happens on death? Should the player be offered to create a new persona?
  • Should the player tag be modified to (also?) display the “persona” name? Does it already perhaps?

Cheers

This would be tricky in some languages.
As far as I know in Ukrainian, Russian, Czechorepublican, Slovakian and a few more languages there a female endings - *ova. Example:
A man named Linyos Torovoltos has a wife named Dmitriva TorovoltosOVA.

In Polish it's even more complicated:
The wife's name could be either: *owa, *yna and *ina
The (unmarried) daughter's name would be *anka or *ówna
And the endings depend (mainly) on whether the last name ends with the letter 'a' or 'A'

This could be solved but it would require a much more complex code and I think other languages have other rules

Maybe a "Re-roll firstname" and "Re-roll lastname"

Actually I like that better than current option

  • Maybe have it as a setting. "Use fantasy and sci-fi names"
  • What happens on death? Should the player be offered to create a new persona?

  • No I don't. But I could have it as an option
  • Should the player tag be modified to (also?) display the “persona” name? Does it already perhaps?

  • Maybe have their nametag change to
    "<player> <realistic name>"
