Name of Person


Wrapper element for the component elements of personal names, such as a <surname>


Conversion Note: If the name parts are unknown or untagged, put the whole name within the <string-name> element, for example, <string-name>Prince Charles</string-name>. Use of the <string-name> element is more likely to lead to better searching in a repository than merely leaving the person’s name untagged. (While the <string-name> model permits the tagging of name parts within it, and “Charles” could be tagged as a given name, such tagging is likely to be rare. See Remarks for <string-name>.)
