Bethesda Softworks has released a new patch for Fallout 4, adding 300 new names to Codsworth's existing player name database.
Just in case you haven't been playing the game (and if you really aren't, why?), these new names, as well as Codsworth's existing name vocabulary, can be spoken by the friendly and loyal (yet devastating and handy) robot companion within the game, which from its early inception, added another highly appreciated layer of immersion to Fallout 4.
Codsworth can refer to a player's character directly as long as their names exist in his directory, in which case, "Sir" or "Ma'am" will be used instead.
Some of the new names include Arya, Brienne, Ned and Joffrey which is certainly a nod to Game of Thrones fans, while the champ from WWE may finally be landing inside the game since Cena has been added as well — and yes, John and Stark have always been in Codsworth's dictionary.
The names were mined by Reddit user, who was generous enough to share it with the internet community as Bethesda did not provide any official list. This was also the case back when the game was launched, and thankfully, Reddit posters have resourceful means to discover all of the names included in the game.
The developers did, however, list the other features and bug fixes that came with the new name database in its latest Fallout 4 patch 1.6 notes.

The new features include an ExitSave function, which basically automatically saves the game whenever a player exits to the main menu. This ExitSave will then delete itself on its own as soon as it is accessed in the next gaming session and is available for all difficulties as well as Survival mode.
New Addon-specific icons have been added to the workshop mode to hopefully reduce the amount of clutter on the screen, while support for future Add-Ons has been added as well.
Some of the bug fixes include an overall stabilized and much smoother gameplay experience, removal of an issue where companions would get randomly stuck walking that disabled them from running, removal of an exploit that allowed players to assign dead settlers to a supply line and optimizations to how mod load orders are handled by the game.
The complete patch notes can be accessed through Bethesda's DevNotes, while the update should now be available for all PC platforms. Xbox users, on the other hand, will have to wait for another week to get their hands on the patch.
As for PS4 console gamers, Bethesda is currently working the on version for the console and will update affected players as soon as the company has new information.
