Computers actually do (pseudo-)random extremely well.
Prolly better to wait until everyone is together (or at least enough
of you that no-one is going to feel the results were "fixed") and
then draw names from a hat.

Print the names on slips of paper and then make a big show of
pulling out a name at random. A twist is for the 1st winner to pick
the 2nd name and then the 2nd winner picks the 3rd slip.
There are no "winners" here: everyone is both a winner and a loser.
