Deck O' Names - Japanese Generator

This is a computer program similar to EBoN or Tablesmith. It generates names for asian/wuxia campaigns. (Your computer must allow the use of active-x controls for this program to operate) The Deck o' names generator can be used to generate family names, male first names, female first names, and Japanese place-names.

Likes:

1) Ease of use. The program is simple and intuitive.
2) Optional word translation feature useful for generating place names.
3) Good value for the money.
4) You don't have to be an expert in Japanese history and culture for the program to do its thing.

Dislikes: None

Bottom line: highly reccommended.

Wonderful product to help me generate names and to check wether they are good luck or bad luck names. Even better than the printed copy as it does the work for me.

Please, will somebody learn that -ko is a female ending, not a male ending


LIKED: More randomness than the Inspiration Pad

DISLIKED: Overpriced, with some random names not fiting the gender name rules. This is not worth the $5.00 I paid.

QUALITY: Acceptable

VALUE: Disappointed

Publisher Reply:
The reviewer's critique, that -ko is a female ending, was one of the same critiques that Tabletop Adventures had for the product author, Amy Vander Vorste in the initial review of this product. However, through research and review of the authorized naming list recognized by Japanese authorities, Tabletop Adventures found that while -ko is most commonly used as a female ending in names, ko does also appear at the end of male names and place names in the following examples. The ending -hiko means prince or lad. The ending -ko for places signifies lake. In female name endings, the ending -ko generally means child or child of. The kanji reflected in each of these endings is distinct and if read in the Japanese would clarify this issue.
