Soundex Code

Manually calculating a Soundex code.
The Soundex uses a code made up of a combination of letters and numbers to represent how a name sounds, rather than how it is spelled. Most variations in spelling or misspelling should produce the same code number.
For example:
SMITH=S530
SMITHE=S530
SMYTH=S530
SMYTHE=S530
