# How to define person's gender from the fullname?

Given person's name, e.g. 'Adjutor Ferguson'.

How to define is it a male or female?

One solution came to my mind:

     I have found Person NLP training dataset here mbejda.github.io.

And via a machine learning software like Apache Mahout, train it and provide real data.


But I am not sure about the accuracy of the results.

May be another approach exist? (e.g. scikit-learn.org)
