Fake Name Generator

Some people who are concerned about their privacy are understandably nervous about giving their names, addresses, and whatnot to random websites just to look at an article, etc. Many use fake info, but websites are catching on by trying verify the info by matching the address to the US ZIP code. If you are one of those people, you may be interested in the Fake Name Generator, which will produce a name, address, date of birth and mother's maiden name. It's all random. Here's what I got:

Joesph T. Villanvera
129 North Street
Grand Rapids, MI 49546

Phone: 231-394-0713
Mother's maiden name: Mogle
Birthday: March 18, 1964

But you can call me Joe.

Great tool for those websites that insist you register before you use them. I read once that the most common name for users of that type of site is Mickey Mouse.

I seem to recall also hearing that most users appear to be from the 90210 ZIP code. I wonder why?
