Welcome to the Surname API. The surname API is an extension of the jQuery plugin for jQuery. Using this library, you can create surname-related content on your website. It also lets you display more information about a surname on your website. It provides a simple way to add a person's full name on your website. It is available for both web and mobile platforms.
A Surname API allows you to add any information about a person's name to your website. There are no restrictions on the number of surnames you can display on your website. The number of entries is unlimited. You can display all or part of the surname. You can also use prefixes and suffixes. Forebears Names provides free and open access to the largest geospatial database of names. With this API, you can easily add surname content to your website.
When adding surname content to your website, you must obtain an API key. The API keys are tied to the user's account. Filling out this form will allow you to access the API and get usage data. You can download this data as well. The data is provided under Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 license. Providing attribution will prevent the use of this data on your site.
The Surname API is provided as a single row in JSON format. Currently there is a soft limit for subscribers of 5000 requests per month. The monthly cost of using the Surname API is only $3.99. About the cost of a Big Mac. But tastes better ;)
