Nickname(3)	      User Contributed Perl Documentation	   Nickname(3)

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.

TODO
       o   Hire	a team of experts to provide a more scientific,	statistically
	   accurate Name Etymology source file.

       o   Create more phoenetically-based sub-regexes.

       o   Detect simple monosyllabic truncation nicknames, be less certain
	   about them, but match more.

       o   Pay more attention to gender.
