BNW Book Game
After borrowing the BNW book from my library for so long that I'm starting to feel guilty about it, I discovered that the Duggar name game gets old after about 10 or so letters... And that was the birth of a new name game.
The way I play it requires a copy of the BNW book (I use the most recent edition, but any of them will work, as long as they have the sibling lists; I don't know if they all do or not), but I think you could adapt it for those who don't have a copy by using the sibling feature of this website.
Start by flipping open to a random name. that's the first child. Flip a coin to determine the gender of the next, and pick a name from the sibling list. Go to the entry for that name, and repeat. I usually do this until I have 19, just because it came after a long stretch of Duggar style name sets, and now I feel like I've been shorted if I do any fewer...
If you pick a name that doesn't have an entry, look it up in the index, and find all the other names that list it as a sibling name. Those are your options.
You can either attempt to maintain a matching sibset, or choose your favorite names. I like to start with the same name and do it both ways. It's amazing how different it turns out.
I don't have any more time at the moment, but I'll be back soon with some sets of my own. :)
