It’s always a hassle for me if I ever create some personalised samples using XMPie. You always need sample data to use, so do you try and copy-past and create some samples, or try and find some? Most of the times I end up creating a few records and then copy-and-pasting hundreds of times!

Well, I stumbled across http://www.fakenamegenerator.com/ today. With 26 languages and 22 countries, the Fake Name Generator is the most advanced name generator that I have come across – and it’s FREE. It will generate names, addresses, social security numbers, credit card numbers, occupations, UPS tracking numbers for any number of recipients – all in a few minutes. Arriving nicely as a CSV zipped file in your inbox. Marvelous!

The days of joe Bloggs turning up in my samples (999 times!) are long gone now.
