'Hunger Games' Hysteria Just Got More Fun With Wacky Name Generators

hunger games name generatorSo here I sit NOT planning to see The Hunger Games this weekend because it's going to be too darn crowded, plus already read the book and know what happens (still can't wait to see it on DVD!).

I came across a few that were worth about five minutes of my time to fiddle with (but probably not more than that, sorry to say).

Hungernames.com (that's an "N" in there, not a "G") gives you random, non-gender specific names such as Wormwood Ragbone. Weird, but at least you find out how you will die: Wormwood by acid rain. Which is better than some of the other silly names and causes of death: Dogtooth Craydundle, killed by a "fishing hook to the eye," or Donkey Nibbleton, slayed by a "sharply worded insult."

And our 5 minutes are up, this is Sagitarria Baxwoll signing off ...
