Perhaps the following modules, together with a dictionary and a few lines of Perl will do?

    Except that you probably shouldn't use Text::Soundex for almost anything. It is a hashing technique for matching names that follow common patterns for English given names and surnames. It works by dropping various letters, combining various letter sequences and truncating the result. It is an interesting but fairly blunt instrument good for grouping names or adding "see also" entries in a telephone book in England and a few other English speaking countries, but much less useful for any other purpose.

    True laziness is hard work

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
