IKEA Product Names as Character Names

The previous post demands a bit of explanation.Earlier this week I stumbled across this neat minimalist RPG called Dwarven Glory. One of the posts regarding character generation calls for names to be pulled at random from the IKEA catalog.After a bit of Googling, I discovered that some nice gent had scraped the IKEA website to create a CSV file containing all the product names and product descriptions posted on the IKEA website.The problem is that the CSV file twisted up the accented characters, had too many duplicates, and was typed in all caps. Ugh.So, I put my limited Excel skills to use, and produced a text file containing 1,451 unique product names.Use it as you see fit (right click and "Save Linked File As..." to download).
