#' Generates a random name from a list of common English words.
#'
#' This function generates `n` random names, each a combination of `n_words`
#' words selected from [common_words].
#'
#' @param n The number of random names to be generated.
#' @param n_words The number of words to combine into a name.
#' @param retry If `TRUE`, a random integer between 1 and 10 is appended to each
#' generated name.
#' @param sep A character string to separate the terms. Not `NA_character_`.
#' @param case One of either "lower", "upper", or "title". The capitalization to
#' use for each word.
#'
#' @return A character vector of length `n` of random names, each composed of
#' `n_word` terms capitalized according to `case` separated by `sep`. Note that
#' names are not guaranteed to be unique.

#' @examples
#' make_english_names(1, n_words = 2)
