No idea if anyone will see this after five years, but I made my own lists using your instructions (thanks for that!) and tested it in a fresh neighborhood. I saw maybe 25 different townies/NPCs and noticed two things: one, all but three had first names starting with A, and those three had B names; two, despite having several hundred surnames available, several duplicates came up. (Two Olsens and three Dillons, among others.) I couldn't see any pattern in the first names, other than the initial; they weren't alphabetized, and they weren't in the order listed.
Thanks for the instructions on making your own version. I successfully made a version for myself importing names from Castaway Stories and adding a bunch more! I'm excited that my very first small foray into modding any aspect of the game worked the first time, as simple as a name replacer is. Thanks so much!
