Hello, My search skills are poor at best, so I was not able to get very far. But I have a nice table of measurement conversions.

What I want is a table of common names so for a given name it will be matched to a standard name.

    Name Standard
    ------ -------
    Bill William
    Rich Richard
    Tony Anthony



Has anyone heard of something like this?

Thank you,
Alvin Ramard

If you're looking for a list of names, Google: "nicknames and full names" and you'll find a few.

What you're trying to do is a simple use of a lookup table. It's a commonly used process, but maybe not for names.

Lookup table no problem. Been there done that.

I was looking for information to populate the lookup table.

Thanks for the nickname hint. One problem I have with internet searches is I tend to focus too tightly.

bear in mind that this is a many to many relashionship - in many cases but not all this will be resolved providing you know the sex of the individual.

e.g. Al could be Alexander, Alistair (and variants), Alan (and variants), Alfred, Alice, Allyssa, Alison

Thanks. This is just a check used for a fuzzy match of first name after SSN and last name are matched.
