The random name generator was originally used to give names for the AI controlled heroes, provided the names were not specifically set otherwise (campaign). With the implementation of the new create hero panel done by TPC team, where whenever you choose a race the random name generator kicks in and creates a suiting name for you, the naming files gained notoriety in the eyes of us modders.
Close study revealed that a lot of the files weren't actually used in Warlords Battlecry 3 and that some races shared name patterns. This was sometimes uncomfortable, particularly for the "evil" races, and names simply got ignored by most fans. So we've changed it! Current plans are to give each race branch a unique naming set according to their culture, life style, history, social activities etc. and we are releasing them and constantly updating them as long as the suggestions flow (starting in version 0.6.2)
