I wanted to auto-generate passwords that were random but not the sort of unreadable gibberish that comes from just combining letters and numbers (you know, stuff like 8ajOga64asiHip). Something close enough to language that a human can read it and remember it.
I couldn’t find anything like this, so I came up with my own random word generator which applies some basic rules to get language-like words. Here are some examples of the sort of words it generates:
I’ve put up a demo which shows the result. You can also download the C# source code.
I was aiming to get words that were something like Flanimals names (e.g. mung ungler, gruntloidian mampaddler), but it’s looks more like a cross between Dutch and Polish so far. Turns out Ricky Gervais can’t be replaced by a machine yet. Has anyone else tried this? Not replacing Ricky Gervais with a machine, but generating readable random words?
