Separate first names from their last names

Namsor’s software offers a name separation technology. We are able to take in a full name, and split it into a first name and last name structure. Our tool also supports Chinese names, in Pinyin or Mandarin Chinese, and Japanese names written in Kanji characters.

Last name
The portion of one's personal name that indicates one's family, tribe or community. It is also refer to as a surname or family name.
