humaniformat (humaniform + format) is a human names parser for R. With it, you can parse names, distinguishing salutations, suffixes, and first, middle and last names. humaniformat recognises compound last names (and preserves them) from a wide range of cultures, although the name format itself is somewhat Western-centric (it assumes, for example, that first name comes before last name, which is not always the standard).
