The Namey API access the U.S. Census Bureau to combine last and first names to create randomized names. The API can be applied to random user profile generation in a social network setting. The request can be customized by gender, rarity of name, number of names to return, and other considerations. The API is accessible for free using a JSON request.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
