Separate first and last names

This example is perfect for folks with inconsistently formatted guest lists: Bob & Mary, Bob + Mary, Bob and Mary; we've got you covered. Parabola's name parser step extracts and categorizes the different pieces of names so that you go home with clean, nicely formatted output.

Separate first and last names

What's in a name?

Using the Name Parser in Parabola is easy. You drag it onto the canvas, hook it up to your data input, and configure a few fields:

  • Which column holds the names?
  • What fields do you want to extract? First, middle, last names, salutations and suffixes are all covered.

The new columns will be named (🥁) according to the part that was extracted, e.g., 'First Name.'
