How to get the gender of a first name in Node.js?

First, we need to add a reference to the library in our packages file:

"dependencies": {
"cloudmersive-validate-api-client": "^1.1.2"

Next up, we need to import the package:

var CloudmersiveValidateApiClient = require('cloudmersive-validate-api-client');

Finally, we just need to call the nameGetGender function:

var CloudmersiveValidateApiClient = require('cloudmersive-validate-api-client');
var defaultClient = CloudmersiveValidateApiClient.ApiClient.instance;
// Configure API key authorization: Apikey
var Apikey = defaultClient.authentications['Apikey'];
Apikey.apiKey = 'YOUR API KEY';
var apiInstance = new CloudmersiveValidateApiClient.NameApi();var input = new CloudmersiveValidateApiClient.GetGenderRequest(); // GetGenderRequest | Gender request informationvar callback = function(error, data, response) {
if (error) {
} else {
console.log('API called successfully. Returned data: ' + data);
apiInstance.nameGetGender(input, callback);

That’s it! Let’s try out this input:

"FirstName": "Elvira",
"CountryCode": "US"

Sure enough, here is the output:

"Successful": true,
"Gender": "Female"

We can input various input first names as well as the CountryCode if available to help narrow in on the context.
