Hi, nope you're free to use them for whatever you like, I took them from two websites listing the most popular nouns/adjectives.
If you do use them, please attribute to my Github :D. I also have this as an npm package called "naampje".

I'm working on a project where my group is doing a Hobbit Name generator. This is working so well, but we would like to add a male first name, female first name, then combined with a surname. Any suggestions on how to modify this code so that would work? Thank you so much!!!

@tkon99 I believe that there is a tiny bug in your code, it should be:

var name = capFirst(name1[getRandomInt(0, name1.length - 1)]) + ' ' + capFirst(name2[getRandomInt(0, name2.length - 1)]);

Basically replacing both + with a -, because in an extreme case it can throw an error.

actually, I don't think we need either + nor - since floor(rand * N) should max at N-1

@Wei-1 you are right, Math.random() returns 0-1 with 1 being exclusive, so neither +, not - is needed #todayilearned

@Tarun3 but also in general for future reference:

This code was written in 2015 and is of low quality, it was written for a specific application and I figured I'd publish it so other people could take advantage of it. I do not plan to support it.
Instead, for production purposes, please use modules such as random-name or unique-names-generator.

Thanks so much, the names generates are super funny... always! I integrated it into https://brie.fi/ng (source here https://github.com/holtwick/briefing/blob/master/app/src/lib/names.js). I hope this is okay with you? I was not able to find license information.

@holtwick sure no problem, cool product by the way!
For others in the future: the code is entirely free to use, attribution is appreciated of course but not necessary. Feel free to share your projects here as well!
