I'm not sure exactly what do you mean by "safe", but perhaps a simpler solution would be to just append your domain name, turning into (The lessons are still good, of course.)

    Or if the intent is to hide the original domain, a hash or the original domain could be used instead.

      And if you still want something "meaningful" map the hash into a word, or two words joined together, from a word list (like /usr/dict/words).

        Be careful with that one - it's filled with nasty words. Just wait till the client demo when you get to explain what is doing on the screen!

    I meant "safe" in terms of not violating anyone's privacy. These email addresses are real ones and revealing them to other clients in a sales demo seems like a bad thing. If it's not actually illegal it probably violates our privacy policy! Just sticking something on the end doesn't seem like enough.
