WE UPDATED OUR GENDER CHECKER DATABASE AND ADDED ABOUT 300K ADDITIONAL NAMES

Genderize a name
Gender API determines the gender of a first name

We are updating our gender checker database with new names from around the world on a regular basis to improve the genderization quality. In addition, we manually check queries for which we could not find a result but that have already been requested several times.

After several months of working on an update of our data, we are happy to announce this big update to our name checker database with about 300,000 new entries. Our team added about 5,000 of those names manually.

Internal backtest showed that this update increased the genderization rate of names by about 2%.

The regular updates ensure the quality of our gender checker database.

Through our manual review, we ensure that the genderization results meet both our requirements and those of our customers.
