Does an auto-namer exist for C2?
If not, is it possible to create one?

Not really, as far as I'm aware. One of the wolfing programs contains a feature that names Norns from a user-defined list, removing them from the list as they're used, and thus being quite useless for extended hands-off runs.

But yes, it should be entirely possible to create one.

I've been wanting to get into attempting a cob. This could be a fun project. Any advice on where to get started?

Oh, I don't think it would be possible as a COB. It would have to be a standalone program that can read external files, I would think, and then interface with the game using the DDE: messaging system.

I think people used to make such programs using Visual Basic, but I don't know what the cheap & easy equivilent would be today; still VB, or has time moved on?

Maybe Python?
