What if a name can be male as well as female?

If you can provide a country code or specific territory in your query, we can guarantee a significant improve in detecting the right gender. For example: While Andrea is male in Italy, Andrea is a female name in Germany and can even be both in the US. In this case, we provide an accuracy value in the query result, ranging between 0 and 100. It tells you how certain we are in having detected the right gender. If you think the value is too low, you can still ask your user to provide the right gender themselves. In most countries, however, we can determine the correct gender in over 94% of cases.

Which countries are supported?

The API fully supports 105 countries. Full support means that we collected at least 300 names in this respective country. However, in most countries our dataset is much larger. Take a look at the following table to learn more about how many names we support in which country. Keep in mind that if we do not provide a suitable support for a country ourselves, you can still crawl the requested names against the entire dataset to get an adequate result.

Can more than one name be queried in a single request?

Yes, this is absolutely possible. You can query up to 100 names at once.

Can I query e-mail addresses?

Our e-mail API can extract names from e-mail addresses and provide the appropriate gender to this respective address. This can help you to personalize your e-mailings with a proper salutation. For example, from the e-mail address "[email protected]", API will extract the name "Marie" and determine the correct gender, which is "female".
