My opinion and is a guess, They have found a way to generate names, if I had to guess, again, I would not doubt that they accumulate passwords and other popular jargon, and slang into a program that generates word uses and spellings etc., . .
if you think about it it would be pretty easy, if you had the right source programs, like spelling, synonyms, opposites and so on.
This way you cant get accused of something illegal, if you generate a list of passwords that you don't use for any reason other than copyrighting, then store the list for sale later, it's no skin off their nose if someone has to use there real name
for an e-mail address.
You never know what there legal trade secrets are, but, if you did they would quickly become illegal.
I recall reserving web site names, I guess most of the time even some really strange names are used up, but, . . .
there was a time or two, that I had my real doubts, . . . . oh just a computer error, that said that really great name you just submitted is in use and purchased by someone else, . . . you can check to see who owns a name, sometimes there very hard to find, I myself personally would like the Federal government to bring some enforcible regulations to oversee, the conduct of these activities, where there could be some real documentation. That is people like you and I have congress deliberate safe guards to preserve our freedom of enterprise by preserving it.
I also recall the time that I was using the Delaware corporation laws to save a few trade names, private companies can reserve names, but they have to register them with the state, the registration protection last for thirty days, now that is for corporation names, however, the records, by what I would understand as the law, . . should last for seven years,
there are reasons for this, . . but if you were to call the state of Delaware, 31 days later, you would find out that the computers they use to store your reservation, has been wiped of that record and no print out exist.
If I had the bucks I would have sued the state for conspiracy to undermne the freedom of Enterprise, and I'd be quite rich today !
Say that someone killed you for that name, there would be no evidence of the motive !!!!
