how can i select random name?

i'll try this but it's can't

To give an example: car, house, bus I want to put them on the label as 1 random record

private void RandName()
    string[] maleNames = new string[1000] { "aaron", "abdul", "abe", "abel", "abraham", "adam", "adan", "adolfo", "adolph", "adrian"};
    string[] femaleNames = new string[1000] { "abby", "abigail", "adele", "adrian"};
    string[] lastNames = new string[1000] { "abbott", "acosta", "adams", "adkins", "aguilar"};
    Random rand = new Random(DateTime.Now.Second);
    if (rand.Next(1, 2) == 1)
        FirstName = maleNames[rand.Next(0, maleNames.Length - 1)];
        FirstName = femaleNames[rand.Next(0, femaleNames.Length - 1)];

Hi merictokatlio...,

Refer below code.


protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    string[] names = new string[] { "aaron", "abdul", "abe", "abel", "abraham", "adam", "adan", "adolfo", "adolph", "adrian" };
    int index = new Random().Next(names.Length);


Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
    Dim names As String() = New String() {"aaron", "abdul", "abe", "abel", "abraham", "adam", "adan", "adolfo", "adolph", "adrian"}
    Dim index As Integer = New Random().Next(names.Length)
End Sub
