The current create-name implementation will generate all alphabetic
strings starting with "w" which includes "wm" after only 12 new

On a side-note, I personally think the encode-base-52 is a bit overengineered vs ~36R
but that's not a bug so I didn't include it in this patch.  ~36R
wouldn't have stomped on any existing globals by the happy accident of
it using UPCASED letters only.
