[edit] [purge] Template documentation

The following documentation is transcluded from Template:Same name/doc. {{same name|first name|last name}} shows a list of people with the same first and last name, their parents, and their spouses. It also categorises the pages on which the template is used.

Note that names are case sensitive. {{same name|Luitgard|de Lorraine}} will return "no such person" while {{same name|Luitgard|De Lorraine}} works as it should.

The 2013 enlargement now looks also for people who have that first name as their sole middle name. See Ann Putnam for a working example.

See {{same name2}} for the version which uses the middle name too.
