Database of Persian Names

CJKI's Database of Persian Names (DPN) covers approximately 27,000 Persian personal names, with currently over 440,000 romanized variants. However the database continues to be expanded.This is a unique resource that has been developed in cooperation with a team of native-speaker experts in Persian phonology.

Features

Features of the database, which is based on roughly 7,000 given names and 20,000 surnames, include:

  • Gender information
  • Type (given name/surname)
  • IPA phonetic transcriptions
  • Confidence rank -- an indicator of the relative likelihood that the variant will be encountered in the real world.

Practical Applications

  • Law enforcement applications including most-wanted lists and deportation lists.
  • Cyber security applications such as for preventing identity theft.
  • Security applications such as anti-terrorism watch lists and retail fraud.
  • Anti-money laundering and fraud detection by financial institutions.
  • Information Retrieval, such as query processing by search engines.
  • Named Entity Recognition and information extraction.
  • Machine Translation, as for transcribing unknown proper nouns.
