Know your Villagers!

This pack was built in 19w09a, but should work in all 1.14 snapshots.

Get to know your villagers! This pack automatically names any un-named villager. Currently there are 91 different names that can be given to villagers, I may add more in the future. (You can comment any new names you want added, I will consider them.)

Additionally, when a villager dies, a death message saying their profession and name is displayed. The death messages are translate tag based, meaning that they are in your selected language, not just english.

If a villager is killed by a zombie there is a possibility of it becoming a zombie villager. by default this is a 50% chance. To change this use the functions vdm_options:(easy/normal/hard). When set to easy there is no chance a villager will turn, at normal there is a 50% chance, and in hard there is a 100% chance.

Installation Instructions
Just take the file of the pack, and drop it directly into your world's datapack folder, nothing else is required!

If you have questions, ideas, or problems, please feel free to say below.

Have Fun!

I don't really like the random names on NPC, but the message for any named creature 's death is something somehow priceless.

Do you think you can make a datapack called "chatbox text event on death of renamed entities"? :)

Yea, that's easy enough... kinda, I suppose I will give it a go!
Amazing pack! Here's a diamond. Will definitely download for my server. Name suggestions: Girl names, like Rachel, Jessica, and Abigail. Also, maybe some more gender-neutral names, like Jordan, and Avery.

I know this is impossible, but can you please add how did they die? This will be fun :D
A Sheperd Villager named Fiz got chased by zombie and went into a lava pit then this will appear:
Sheperd Fiz jumped on lava.
that's very cool

Edit: On the video, you're so cruel you kill them with diamond sword like you meant it, just "/kill @e[type=villager,distance=..3,limit=1]" instead, i'm getting Thanatopobia and Necrophobia help

It may not be entirely impossible, I have a few ideas, I may give it a try, but currently my main priority for this is optimizing the death detection.
