In a project for Transparency International Georgia we are creating a database of Asset Declarations of Georgian public officials. Besides a lot of worthy information about their income and relations to companies, having such a large database also gives the opportunity to do fun linguistic research.

Here we report on the names occuring in this database. These are names of Georgian public officials and their reported relatives. Georgian names are simple: they always consist of two tokens “firstname, surname”. There are 1604 different first names and 3883 different surnames in our database, coming from a total of 19522 different names.
