It was a very sad day when the Random Name Generator did not work, but now I finally have an alternative, Flippity.net. It works! Just follow the directions at http://flippity.net/RandomNamePicker.asp (one thing to note, the get link is on the second tab of the google sheet you copy, look across the bottom of the sheet to where it states get link) Have fun!
