NEW : our dedicated demo web site chinese-names.app uses NamSor V2 API.
NamSor Gender API, the online free service to predict the gender of a personal name, now supports Chinese names.
The need for such a service is not immediately obvious, since most Internet companies in China have access to PRC’s National identification number database, with an odd/even number indicating respectively Male/Female with 100% accuracy.
To predict the likely gender of a Chinese name, the API was originally using Wudi’s Gender Guesser data file with rewritten code. It has now been refactored to benefit from NamSor socio-linguistics algorithm.
