"To be extremely specific, I want to mimic the vendor name part of the MITRE Common Platform Enumeration found on page 10 of "

FWIW: That was how you should have asked the question in the first place.

Knowing only what 30 seconds of googling has told me about CPE, wouldn't the best way to mimic CPE's behavior be to directly use the Official CPE Database of names?

    Yes, it's easy to get the dictionary of vendor strings used in the database, but I just have all these long text strings of company names. Probably including a bunch of companies that aren't in the CPE database. If I get the mapping done, I'll just stick to CPE vendor strings.
