  • Fixes: There were some accidental name repetitions. I fixed them.
  • Improvements: I expanded the name list. There's now around 250 male names, 250 female names and 400 surnames.

So, as an Italian player, I find kind of annoying that maxis translated all the premade sims' names and replaced them with Italian names but yet they couldn't do it with PNGs.
Since I was tired of names like Luke Jitmakusol spawning in my italian-themed neighborhoods, I created this mod.
I followed this tutorial to create my mode, and i want to thank both ijustneedsomeeyes for creating the tutorial and jordi for the mod base.

Sources for the names during the creation were: friends, family, enemies, exes, friend's exes, mixed with some of my instagram followers and a few more rare and uncommon (but still italian) names and surnames.
Also, there is a little easter egg: You might get a male sim named Panna. This is a nickname we gave to one of our friends and I wanted it to show up in the townies' list.
There will also be sims named Judy, as this is my mother's name (Grandpa liked foreign names).

In the end, I decided to upload this mod as it might be useful to other players too. It is ideal for italian-themed neighborhoods or just for those that want their townies and PNGs to have italian names.
I hope you'll enjoy it!
