Indian Fuzzy name Matching Tool.

Project description

indian name_match

Indian Fuzzy Name matching like no other current algorithim. Improvised verion of Soundex for Indian Name Matching. Deals With:

  1. Phonetic Variations such as Pradeip Singh matches with Pradeep Singh.
  2. Typographical Mistakes such as Mr Akhil Kumar matches with Akhil Kumar.
  3. Reordered Items Akhil Kumar and M/r Kumar Akhil will be a match.
  4. Prefixes and Suffixex Siddhesh Sharma and s Sharma will be a match
  5. Abbrevations and Initials Mr/miss etc all are preprocessed

I first preprocessed data also considering phonetic similarity of alphabets based on some common problems of Indian names. After that i implemented soundex and used it to find similarity of names. If two names seems similar , I have implmented my improvised vowels/cosonants functions which clears the situation better and gives an improvised Output.
