in reply to Parsing Names in a Text File

Look out for middle names and surnames that start with "De", etc. They are easily confused. I bet there is a CPAN module that does this, and I bet is has a list of "probable" two word surname prefixes.

    It can be totally ambiguous, too. Ricky Van Shelten, the singer, has a FIRST NAME of "Ricky Van".
