How Random is Random?

for those who're wandering, this question is for the npcs that get recruited as companions and get randomized names afterwards (or probably even before then, i don't know). lets take the npc daisuke (the yakooza recruited from & by swashbucklers-only) for instance, he generates a randomized name after recruiting him but like really, what are the odds of them (randomly) generating their name (such as daisuke) back to what it originally was before being recruited?

i would guess (only guessing here) it would be zero to none but who knows? any thoughts or answer(s) even would be appreciated.

thank you very much.

I never really thought about it. A companion is a companion; I'm glad when I recruit one. But then there are companions with absolutely rotten names and it would be nice to be able to rename them.

Ah yes, good ol' a n g r y c o t t o n d a l t o n! Such an elegant Toreador!

My brother got Two-gunned for the adjective in his companion's name.

(By his companion I meant his Toreador, I should've been more specific)
