Modern United States Random Name Generator

Did I never share this?  Apparently I never shared this.

For my Unknown Armies game, I built a random name generator using U.S. Census data.  First name data comes from 1974 birth records (representing the mean age in 2011), and surname data comes from 1990.  It generates ten male and ten female names at a time, in what should represent a statistically accurate distribution (at least according to Behind the Name).  Click CTRL+R to refresh (but don't be a jerk and edit it, or else I'll be forced to hunt you down).
