Melissa's Global Name Verification Provides Name Parsing

Name Parsing

Global Name Verification takes full names and breaks them out into five components: Prefix; First Name; Middle Name; Surname; and Suffix. Then a gender code is applied. Multiple name formats will be parsed into a single standard format.

Dual Names: Mr. and Mrs. John and Mary Smith Mr. John Smith, Mrs. Mary Smith.
Inverse Names: Smith Jr., Mr. John James Mr. John James Smith, Jr.
Mixed Names: Mr. John J. and Smith, Jr. Mr. John J. Smith, Jr.

Gender Determination

Adds a gender code to each parsed name as F, M, or N. "James" returns "M" for male, "Cheryl" returns "F" for female, and "Chris" or "Terry" which may be male or female-returns "N" for neutral.
