Name Cloud Service - Parse Names, Determine Gender, & Flag Vulgar Words Input/output

Full, Dual, Inverse, & Mixed First Name Parsing

Global Name Cloud Service takes full names, such as “John James Smith” and breaks them into up to five components. In addition to Full Name parsing, Global Name Cloud Service can also parse:

  • Dual Names: Mr. and Mrs. John and Mary Smith Jr.
  • Inverse Names: Smith Jr., Mr. John James
  • Mixed First and Mixed Last: Mr. John L. and Smith, Jr. (when a field is not consistently populated with one format)
  • Apply a Gender Code to Each Name

Global Name Cloud Service will indicate the gender of the person in your database or mailing list based on first name. For instance:

  • “James” returns an “M” for male
  • “Cheryl” returns an “F” for female
  • “Chris” and Terry” – which can be either male or female – returns an “N” for neutral

However, you can assign a gender to otherwise neutral names by changing the “gender bias” and “assignment aggression” properties or by overriding the Global Name Cloud Service name database.

Catch Vulgar Words that Lead to Waste and Fraud

Global Name Cloud Service will also flag names containing possible vulgar words, nuisance names, and associated company words to help you screen out possible hoaxes and pranks.

Add Casing for Company Names

Global Name Cloud Service recognizes Company Names (using a special table to understand what are words and what are acronyms in company names) and returns them in Upper or Lower case.

Create Custom Salutations

Once you’ve parsed your names, identified gender, and removed non-name or bogus records, Global Name Cloud Service can create the desired custom salutations based on the salutation format you want to use, for instance Formal, Informal, default Slug, etc.
