Themed settlements can now have appropriate names and titles to match.

The mod utilizes a very simple modular system and is well-organized making expanding upon it very simple.  Check the Articles section for a tutorial on how to create your own pistol from scratch.  It probably won't take more than fifteen minutes to an hour depending on your familiarity with Fallout 4's modding tools.  Now that I've done it a couple dozen times it takes me just a couple of minutes.

Craft what you need at a chem station.

Requires F4SE and Rename Anything.

* Generic First Name Only and Generic First and Last Name pistols are unisex and create a name based on a gender check of the target.  Sometimes females fail the check for whatever reason and are given male names.  The Female versions of those guns always assign female names and are intended as a fail-safe for these circumstances.
