This mod adds more names for the game to pick from when generating Japanese, Indian, Moroccan and Islander townies.

By default, if your sims visit Sulani, San Myshuno and Mt. Komorebi often, the game will generate sims to populate festivals, streets and to take part in activities. These townies do not get their names from the same list you have in CAS (randomized) but have separate lists of culturally appropriate names. These lists are short (some only 10 names long) and you may have noticed some repetition or have grown tired of seeing the same names over and over again.

This mod expands the following lists with names taken from census data. It does not replace the default names, it just ads to the lists.
I tried to include a decent variety of names on both lists and included some unixed names (that's why you may encounter a name in both the female and male names lists) .

Indian-female_first_names

Indian-last_names

Indian-male_first_names

Islander-female_first_names

Islander-last_names

Islander-male_first_names

Japanese-female_first_names

Japanese-last_names

Japanese-male_first_names

Moroccan-female_first_names

Moroccan-last_names

Moroccan-male_first_names


These changes are only if you play the game in English. I didn't make any changes to the localized versions of the lists.
I think you might see the new names if you play in a language with a roman alphabet but I can't test.

No changes were made to other name lists.
Compatible with 1.90.375.1020 (Newest High School Years Patch)

This mod will conflict with other mods that affect names (even if those mods are for different lists of names. Unfortunately all names are in one place)
