Abstract(in English) In this paper, I describe the identification issue of person name which appeared in text. I explore 5,778 person names which are extracted from 7,600 sales reports, 55% of them are ambiguous due to multiple candidates in identifiable person list. Also this result shows 52 people with the same surname at the maximum may be treated as one person. In order to resolve this problem, I propose an algorithm using organization name which co-occur with person name in the same sentence. In an experiment using the sales reports, 89% of the ambiguous person names are identified correctly.
