HOWTO: Loren ipsum for names

I'm in the process of mocking-up a social network interface, and I found myself looking for the equivalent of "loren ipsum" fake text, but for the names of friends. While you could use a Random Name Generator, I think it would be more crafty to create a remix of classic loren ipsum text. Here are my examples:
loren ipsum becomes:
Lauren Ipsum (female)
Lorne Ipsum (male)
To reproduce this, simply take any pair of words from any "loren ipsum" text, and swap the first word with a normal first name that is approximately homophonic and shares the same first letter.
