How to Validate a Name in JavaScript

1 min readJun 1, 2021


Online sign-up capabilities for websites and applications have enabled a broader reach for businesses and a more convenient experience for customers. However, allowing user input has its drawbacks; the content is subject to syntax errors or falsified information, and this can lead to inaccurate data and botched orders. To ensure one of the most critical pieces of information (customer name) is valid, you can use the following API in JavaScript to parse and validate a full name.

First, we will run this command to install jQuery:

bower install jquery

Next, we can call the validation function with the following code:

var settings = {
"url": "",
"method": "POST",
"timeout": 0,
"headers": {
"Content-Type": "application/json",
"data": JSON.stringify({
"FullNameString": "<string>"
$.ajax(settings).done(function (response) {

This will return several pieces of information including title, first name, middle name, and last name, as well as nick name, suffix, and display name (if applicable).




There’s an API for that. Cloudmersive is a leader in Highly Scalable Cloud APIs.
