Roll the dice (http://www.bgfl.org/bgfl/custom/reso...ice/twelve.htm) to determine the gender of each child. Roll seven times initially. An odd number signifies a boy, and an even number signifies a girl. If you roll an 11 or 12, you have had twins; roll twice more to decide the genders of the twins.
You may want to come up with a full name for some of the names you select, as many of them are traditionally nicknames.
