Database of Arabic Proper Nouns

Below are samples of our database of Arabic proper nouns, which includes surnames (S), given names (M=male, F=female) and place names (P). The sample shows both vocalized and unvocalized versions as well as phonemic transcriptions, English equivalents. We also have various systems for automatically transliterating as well as transcribing proper nouns (see Automatic Romanizer of Arabic Names).
