A Cooler one for me is the multi-lines simultaneous typing
with which you can accomplish the above task in the following fewer steps
 
1- In the method where you wish to build the list, paste the list of names
2- Because compiler will not understand these lines, it will not be correctly indented, so indent them manually
3- Create a vertical zero-char width box selection before the names
4- Start typing sb.Appen..... (it will be written 20 times Smile | :) )
            StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder():
            sb.AppendLine("Peter
            sb.AppendLine("Paul
            sb.AppendLine("Mary
            sb.AppendLine("Susan
            sb.AppendLine("Joe
5- Repeat step 3 at the end of the names to close the methods and add semicolons
