function rndmHash()
{
  // get the current time in nanosecond 
  // to make sure the duplication margin is small
  // then hash it
  $string = system('date +%s%N');
  $hash   = Hashids::encode($string);

  // incase "Hashids" failed
  return $hash !== '' ? $hash : uniqid();
}

foreach ($x as $y) {
  // ...

  // get a new random on each iteration
  $name = rndmHash();
}
