Module Version: 1.16   Source   Latest Release: Lingua-EN-Nickname-1.17

NAME ^

Lingua::EN::Nickname - Genealogical nickname matching (Liz=Beth)

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Lingua::EN::Nickname;

  # Equivalent first names?
  $score= nickname_eq( $firstn_0, $firstn_1 );

  # Full, expanded, name(s) 
  @roots= nickroot( $firstn );

DESCRIPTION ^

Nicknames, alternate spellings, and alternate etymological derivations make checking first name equivalence nearly impossible. This module will tell you that 'Maggie', 'Peg', and 'Margaret' are all probably the same name.
