Matching and merging names can be tricky. How do you relate William Smith with Bill Smith? The answer is the new pdNickname 2.0. It is an easy-to-use, comprehensive, and up-to-date database designed to facilitate matching names that are dissimilar because one is a given first name while another is a nickname or other variation. It is available in Pro and Standard editions.
Regardless of the version licensed, it contains a large set of related English, Spanish, and international first names and nicknames covering more than 200 languages along with a host of additional features never before available on this scale.
Both editions include the same names and features except the Pro version comes equipped with fuzzy logic. Fuzzy logic allows matching when lists have typographical errors or stylized spellings. The Standard edition has everything except fuzzy logic. See our What is Fuzzy Logic? PDF guide for examples and further information about this new technology.
pdNickname utilizes only the ANSI character set (ASCII values 0 to 127 and extended values 128 to 255). It is fully compatible with pdGender and both are comprised of the same set of names. For every name, gender, origin, usage, and relationship type in the pdNickname database, there is a corresponding record in the pdGender database linked by an identification number. The names in pdNickname Pro are in pdGender Pro and the names in pdNickname Standard are in pdGender Standard.
