No, it would have to built into the game engine... Currently the game engine picks names from a predefined list to match the regional location of the HQ as Pocus said above.

True. Many of them moved up there for jobs in the 1940s and 1950s. What's really funny is how quickly they turn Yankee and look down on the "poor hillbillies" in Kentucky. :sourcil:
