On Debian, we have a package like wamerican that comprises of words (/usr/share/dict/american-english) from an American dictionary. Are there similar Debian/other packages for people's names, addresses, cities (e.g. John Doe, or 10 Downing Street, or Cairo) etc?

  • It would be very simple to write a small program/script that creates a random address using a dictionary. – HalosGhost Apr 25 '15 at 15:27

There's the faker ruby gem that randomly outputs pieces of data out of a very similar data set.

The data it uses is contained in its yml files in the subdirectories of lib.
