Not in V, actually-- they now use the same method as the randart names (Markov chains), except seeded with Latin names (and also "abracadabra", "piffpaffpouf", "izzy", "wizzy", "letsgetsbusy", "justlikethat", "hocus", "pocus", "shazam", "please", which explains why if izzy and wizzy crop up so much, since there are no other words that like them in the list...). You get some cracking scroll names in V now; I believe I got something like "precogitat" for a scroll once.
