OUR DATABASE GROWS AND GROWS

We are continuously adding more and more datasets to our database. Today, we support more than 140 countries with over 350,000 unique names. All in all, our database contains 5,347,230 datasets. With 68,077 names the United States is our best supported country in the world.

JQUERY PLUGIN AVAILABLE

Our jQuery Plugin provides an intuitive way to implement our API in different online forms. The plugin is hosted on Github. This example demonstrated the basic usage:
$('input#firstname').genderApi({key: genderApiClientKey}).on('gender-found', function(e, result) {
                if (result.accuracy >= 60) {
                    alert('Gender found: ' + result.gender);
                }
            });
Please visit our plugin page for more information and detailed instructions for use.

MULTIPLE NAMES PER QUERY

We've added support for multiple names per query. You can now query up to 100 names in one single request. To query multiple names simply add then to the url separated by semicolon:
GET https://gender-api.com/get?name=anna;jack;stephen
The result will look like this:
{"name":"anna;jack;stephen","result":[{"name":"anna","gender":"female","samples":51142,"accuracy":98},{"name":"jack","gender":"male","samples":24890,"accuracy":97},{"name":"stephen","gender":"male","samples":26428,"accuracy":100}],"duration":"190ms"}

GENDER-API.COM WENT ONLINE

Since the market was lacking an easy way to deduce the gender from a first name for commercial use, we started our project gender-api.com with a dataset of about 140,000 names in 68 different countries to meet these needs. Our goal is to support the maximum level of variant forms of spelling and to take into account the peculiarities of different countries all over the globe.
