Rather clever, perhaps you need to throw in a few Scottish names as well and surely there would be at least one smith. But on a serious note, automating scenario generation is a good idea. I have been trying to do the same at a higher level, but find its mainly useful for the person publishing a scenario as no-one wants to muck around with computers on gaming day.
