Puritan name generator

This name generator will generate 10 random Puritan names and surnames. I focused on the virtue names and similar names only since they're the more unique and sometimes funny ones and because the regular names are just regular English names.

The Puritans were English Reformed Protestants who sought to purify the Church of England in the 16th and 17th century, which meant they wanted to get rid of all Roman Catholic practices. While they didn't succeed in doing so they did leave their mark on history.

As far as names go Puritans often used virtues to name their children. Names like 'Hope', 'Innocence' and so on. These may seem like fairly ordinary names since we use some of these today, but some of the virtue names the Puritans used are a little odd to say the least. Names like 'Fly-Fornication' and 'Has-Descendants'.
