The recent spree in town name newgrfs motivated me to create a town name set for my mother tongue as well which provides more than the German random town names offered by OpenTTD by default. Let me present you:

German Town Names

It offers you a choice of three different town name lists in the game options window:
* real names from 669 former and present "Kreisst├Ądte" and "kreisfreie St├Ądte"
* randomly generated names from a set of common town name parts
* a combination of the above two with a 3:1 ratio of real names vs. fictional names

Get it in the usual places from the grocery or devzone

Enjoy

Update to version 0.2.0, available from the DevZone or BaNaNaS.

The set now features all ~2000 official towns within Germany and assigns the probability weighted by their population as of the year 1970; you can also choose separate sub-sets of North, East, West and South Germany.

version 0.2.0 wrote:
- Feature: Tripple the number of 'real' town names by including names of current German towns
- Change: Adjust the probability of some pre- and suffixes
- Fix: Saarland has only borders with Rhineland-Palatinate. Thus associate it with the same region
- Fix: Typo in town name
- Fix: Some prefixes of the random townnames were missing a space
- Fix: Some real town names contained too many spaces
- Add: Town name lists by the federal states and combine them to North, South, West and East German town name lists
- Add: Town sizes from 1970 for all towns with currently > 20000 inhabitants and uses these as proxy for probabilities
