A part that may have a type code signifying the role of the part in the whole entity name, and qualifier codes for more detail about the name part type. (Typical name parts for person names are given names, and family names, titles, etc. ).


Tv3EntityNamePartType type_;
   Indicates whether the name part is a given name, family name, prefix, suffix, etc.

Not every name part must have a type code, if the type code is unknown, not applicable, or simply undefined this is expressed by a null value (type.isNull). For example, a name may be "Rogan Sulma" and it may not be clear which one is a given name or which is a last name, or whether Rogan may be a title.

nptFAM : Family : Family name, this is the name that links to the genealogy. In some cultures (e.g. Eritrea) the family name of a son is the first name of his father

nptGIV : Given: Given name.

Note: don't call it "first name" since this given names do not always come first

nptTITLE : Title : Part of the name that is acquired as a title due to academic, legal, employment or nobility status etc.

Note: Title name parts include name parts that come after the name such as qualifications

nptDEL : Delimiter : A delimiter has no meaning other than being literally printed in this name representation. A delimiter has no implicit leading and trailing white space

ISet qualifier;
   The qualifier is a set of codes each of which specifies a certain subcategory of the name part in addition to the main name part type.

Example, a given name may be flagged as a nickname (CL), a family name may be a name acquired by marriage (SP) or a name from birth (BR).

If populated, the values contained in this attribute SHALL be taken from the HL7 EntityNamePartQualifier2 code system.
