As Mike Kershaw said, it's not terribly practical, but there is indeed
a tool that will do it - MDK has an option that will do this for you.
See the writeup here:

It relies on a good dictionary file and a lot of patience..

Basically it will just probe the ESSID with the network name from the
dictionary file and try and get a response.
