Names and place name dictionary

This dictionary lets you search for names of people, places, products and companies from the enamdic dictionary file. Input is autodetected, but when inputting romanised complete names (family + given name) the entry should have space between the family and given name. Usually this will not be important, but you never know when it makes the difference between finding something and not finding something...The legend for the results is as follows:

  • (f) - family name
  • (p) - a personal name
  • (g) - a girl's given name
  • (m) - a boy's given name
  • (c) - a complete name
  • (pl) - a place name
  • (pr) - a product name
  • (co) - a company name
  • (or) - an organisation name
  • (-) - not yet categorised

All kanji in the results you get back hotlink to the kanji dictionary, so you can look up a kanji directly from the names dictionary and conversely you can search the names dictionary from the kanji results as well. Be aware that there is no result-set filtering here, if you search for something that matches 2000 names, you will *get* 2000 names; search wisely. If you think there are bugs in this system, send me an email through the contact page, or hit the forum and post a bug report there.
