Autonamer Making

I'd like an autonamer, stocked with dragonish names, that doesn't consider generation OR sex, just has a big pool of names it uses. I found one that doesn't consider generation, but not sex. And Protective Tub uses two words where I just want to use one. I'm having trouble getting agents to decompile, also (program keeps crashing) so it's hard sometimes to use existing agents for reference anyway. Does anyone know how to do this? I can write out the actual names myself, but I'm at a loss as to how to make an agent that will use them the way I want. Right now I'm just editing the standard autonamer's catalogue file, and I can live with that, but since these are all invented names, none of them have a set gender connotation, so it'd be better to be able to use all of them for both sexes. If I just make the list the same for both sexes though that runs a major risk of multiple Norns in the same run getting the same name.

Conclude with killer catchphrase.

Which program are you using to decompile agents? Have you tried Jagent?

Jagent is the one and unfortunately, while I had no issues with it on my own computer, on this machine it really, really doesn't like to work, and I don't know why.

Are you using the latest version of Java?

Welp. Here I am trying to do this again and just as clueless about how to pull it off as I was the first time. x.x

Does Jagent still give you errors?

Advanced Protective Tub has an option to have no space between the first and second names. Being able to randomise the first and last parts of a name should help cut down on the chances of having the same name.

So you could have for example:
Draco + Fire = Dracofire
Thunder + Malice = Thundermalice
Greed + venom = Greedvenom

To be fair, that risk is always there. I don't think it makes a statistical difference if you pull names from one large list, or from two identical large lists.
If I recall right, the standard autonamer doesn't give a flip either way if a creature already has the selected name or not. It merely relies on the sheer size of it's namelist to minimize doubles.
