Guess

Statistical gender detection for Ruby

Works with first names

Guess.gender("Don")
# {gender: "male", confidence: 0.9965635738831615}

And full names

Guess.gender("Betty Draper")
# {gender: "female", confidence: 0.9992498124531133}

or

Guess.gender("Draper, Betty")

Occasionally, it just doesn’t know

Guess.gender("Manhattan")
# {gender: "unknown", confidence: nil}

Data obtained from the US Census Bureau, so it works best with American names. The data source does not contain information on non-binary genders.
