new names

We are thrilled to announce a significant enhancement to our platform that will make your name-based inquiries even more enriching and informative. By leveraging our upgraded country of origin endpoint you can now receive detailed information about the meaning and ethnicity of names, and their gender predictions. Here’s how this new feature can add value to your projects and applications.

New Feature Highlights

Name Meaning

Our latest enhancement taps into rich cultural histories to provide the meanings of first names. For instance, a request with the first name "Johann" reveals:
Johann is the German variation of John, which means 'God is gracious'. This name was frequently used in the Middle Ages across Europe, especially for religious figures.

Country of Origin

We've extended our function to predict the country of origin for the queried name. For example:
Country of Origin for Johann: Germany (DE): 52% probability, Austria (AT): 48% probability. Both countries fall under the Western Europe region.

Language Of Origin

The endpoint also provides the language of origin for the name:
Language of Origin for Johann: Germanic
