 Description     : Simple Python module for parsing human names into
their individual components.

This nameparser module tries to parse human names into indivudual
components (title, first, middle, last, suffix).

Supports 3 comma placement variations for names of people in latin-based
languages.

   * Title Firstname Middle Lastname Suffix
   * Lastname, Title Firstname Middle [,] Suffix [, Suffix]
   * Title Firstname M Lastname, Suffix [, Suffix]

Examples:

   * Doe-Ray, Col. John A. Jérôme III
   * Dr. Juan Q. Xavier de la Vega II
   * Juan Q. Xavier Velasquez y Garcia, Jr.

It also tries to correctly capitalize names and titles when confronted
with all upper- or lowercase input, for example:

   * bob v. de la macdole-eisenhower phd -> Bob V. de la
MacDole-Eisenhower Ph.D.

The module should be unicode safe but that support is fairly untested.
