Synonym dictionaries of person names

I am looking for synonym dictionaries of person names that I can use with
the Elasticsearch synonym analyser.
e.g. dictionaries that map "Ted" to "Edward", and "Bill" to "William".
I am curious to know what others are using.
So far I have found these two possible sources:

And perhaps
http://www.behindthename.com

Thanks,
David

I've built one before from raw data but you need:

  1. a lot of data
  2. a unique ID per person
  3. some noise/variation in the names recorded for each person

The input is of this form:

personID recorded_name
======= =============
1 Rob
1 Robert
1 Bob
2 Dave
2 David
2 Alice
...

The output is a weighted graph of name<->variant e.g Robert== Bob with a
strong confidence rating.
Using this I know not just real names but also typos e.g. that "Janes" is
more likely to be "James" than "Jane" (a common typo due to key locations
on keyboard).

Was it raw POS tagged data or just raw data? can you share the code /
process you used?
