This tool is intended to help you find common names from the common name list.

You can look up a specific name:


And you can also check your collection for names that may need to be updated:


Note though that this is only as good as the data in the common name list. For exampel, the entry above for The Carey Treatment is misleading, because there is one (and only one) entry in the common name list for an actor James Coburn, but it is not for that James Coburn. So the results here should be taken as a guide, not as definitive answers. Please use responsibly!

Please read the help file for important info on how to create your local common name list.

CommonNameTool 1.1.0

Using the tool I realized that it is sometimes useful to open the common name post in the forum for the person in question. So, I added this function as a context menu. Just right click on a row:



However, you need to re-create your local database in order to incorporate the links into it. Just copy the forum post again, as described in the help file topic "Create a common name database". If you don't, the program will still work, but the context menu will be disabled.
