Generate Name Options

Default gender The Default Gender property is the gender to assume when the matchIT API can't determine whether the name is male or female e.g. Chris Smith, C Smith.
Use equivalent name If enabled, the input first name is replaced with its equivalent from the NAMES.DAT file.
Enhanced double barrelled lookup When enabled, this setting will cause an unrecognised middle name to be considered part of a non-hyphenated double-barrelled last name.
Process blank last name With this setting enabled, a blank lastname will cause extra processing to be performed on other input data to help detect typographical errors.
Parse name elements When enabled, this will cause input name elements (including prefix, firstnames, and lastname) to be parsed.
Detect inverse names Attempt to identify addressee names that have been specified with the lastname preceding the firstnames, provided a comma delimiter follows the lastname (for example, "Smith, John" where Smith is the lastname).
Parse as normalized name Addressee names are assumed to be in a delimited normalized format.

Generate Company Options
