Check the gender of a first name

February 8th 2011 · Computing

I needed a very simple mechanism to perform a gender sanity check on a first name to promote error checking on data entry. After some quick Google searches I compiled a consolidated list of first names and the probable gender of the person with that first name.

This method is obviously error prone. It is not intended to be a 100% validation of a gender based on the first name, it’s intended to be used as a red flag when checking a given gender against a given first name.

You can test individual names using the check-name page or you can just download the CSV file and use it in whatever manner you wish.
