The Name Confluxer (a random name generator)

In the course of my random wanderings, I came across the language confluxer, a script designed to create vocabulary for new artificial languages by mashing up lists of words from existing ones. It was too amusing to resist; I turned it into a CGI program, compiled a few entertaining lists, and blam! instant toy.

How it Works

The script takes a list of words and associates every pair of letters with the letters known to follow that pair. It then chooses a letter-pair from the beginning of a word, adds one of the letters associated with that pair, and keeps going until reaching a space or the maximum word length.
