The RandomFirstNameMale transformer is developed to populate specified database columns with random male first names. This tool is essential for applications requiring the simulation of user profiles, testing gender-specific features, or anonymizing user data in datasets while focusing on male names.


Name Description Default Required Supported DB types
column The name of the column to be affected Yes text, varchar
keep_null Indicates whether NULL values should be preserved false No -


The RandomFirstNameMale transformer utilizes a comprehensive list of male first names to inject random male first names into the designated database column. This feature allows for the creation of diverse and realistic user profiles with a focus on male names without using real user data.

Example: Populate random male first names for the user_profiles table

This example demonstrates configuring the RandomFirstNameMale transformer to populate the first_name column in the user_profiles table with random male first names. It is an effective method for simulating a variety of user profiles with diverse male first names.

RandomFirstNameMale transformer example
- schema: "public"
  name: "user_profiles"
    - name: "RandomFirstNameMale"
        column: "first_name"
        keep_null: false

In this configuration, the first_name column will be updated with random male first names for each user profile entry, replacing any existing non-NULL values. If the keep_null parameter is set to true, existing NULL values in the column will be preserved, ensuring the integrity of records where male first name information is not applicable or provided.
