A cool name generator applet written by Chris Wetherell. Hash maps letters from your name to actual character names from the The Lord of the Rings trilogy.
In Chris' own words:
It started because I needed to get DSL at my little California
apartment for my job. That was during the tech boom.
Just after the DSL was installed, I realized I could buy my first and last
name as a domain name and map it to the computer here in my apartment. Which
seemed too convenient to be true, but I was pleasantly surprised.
One afternoon, I thought up something fun. This. Except I started making up
the hobbit names.
Then Jane said I should use, um, real names.
Really! So she compiled names from the Lord of The Rings appendices. I then
placed a link to this page from my weblog.
And half a million page views and counting later, here we are.
