RE: Still neck division
90 adjectives * 89 nouns = 8010 possible division names. So each unique name has a likelihood of appearing that's 1/8010. That's about 0.0125%.
But then the likelihood of getting the same name twice depends upon how many times you generate names. Say you generate a name, and we get "Still Neck." Then the number of subsequent generations you plan on making affects your big picture likelihood of getting that same name again. If you generate one additional division name, then your likelihood of it being "Still Neck" again is [(1/8010) * 1] = ~0.0125%. If you generate two additional division names, then the expected likelihood would be [(1/8010) * 2] = ~0.025%. So the chance of getting any name to appear twice is actually [(1/8010) * (N  1)] where N is the number of divisions. EDIT: Wait, actually hang on... Yeah, I think I'm wrong, but it's still definitely higher than 0.012%.
