EA has generated some interesting names for some of my sims. Most of the time I just let them be as I have twallans story progression & woohooer mod and a lot of my unactive sims are at it like rabbits.
I do wonder what the developers were on when they came up with the list of names.
I have Twallan's SP, and most of the time the names are ok, but there are times I use Master Controller and change it. Naming a boy Kelly or Courtney, for example.
This is what gets on my nerves more than the random names. I can accept random names because it makes the game somewhat realistic (some people in the real world give their children bizarre names) but giving a gender specific name to the wrong gender .
Alright! I concede that it's fine to name your child after the days of the week Thing is though, why Tuesday? It's probably the most nondescript day of the week! You might as well call your child 'mid afternoon'!

I have to agree to a certain extent. I'd rather exchange your over-the-top weird names for my ugly boring normal names in my French game like Diane, Natalie, George, Simone, Susanne, Nancy, Stéphane and all those older generation names. They're just... lifeless. All of the random sims get overly common names in my game =/
Take in consideration that I'm french and I try my best to write an understandable english :)
This is why I get a pop up notification asking me to name any babies born to my families (Nraas). Otherwise, I like trying to explain away weird or silly names on the townies. To me it's more real, considering people in real life can have fairly odd names. I mean, me, my brother, and my father all have the same first name (mine is just the Spanish derivation that Americans loved to use in the '70s for girls).
