Weekend Challenge: What's in a Name?

Greetings, all. I'm baaaaaack! ;)

This weekend's challenge is pretty simple. I have access to* an infinite number of random names, for characters ready to meet the world. Whether these are new people entering your 'verse of choice or A BRAND SPANKIN' NEW 'VERSE... the choice is yours!

Your options are:
+ MALE
+ FEMALE
+ EITHER
~and~
+ COMMON
+ AVERAGE
+ RARE

You can have as many names as you'd like, as many times as you'd like.

If you aren't sure what to do with the characters (from a graphics standpoint, at least), consider stealingtaking a page from the Create a TV Show-monthly challenge and put together a headshot&bio of the character.

Rewards for your creations are pretty open -- I can offer drabbles in a limited number of fandoms or graphics of many varieties (especially icons or sigtags for all your landcomm needs).


*aka I have a link to a name generator and I know how to use it
