comment Is there a approximate string comparison function which is odd like mathematical functions are odd?
This property is called "antisymmetrical". It's usually used only with boolean values (f(a,b) IFF !f(b,a)), but it's a straightforward generalization to extend this to mean f(a,b) == -f(b,a).

comment Compare names and the use of Levenshtein's algorithm
The Levenshtein distance is strictly a character-based measure. Human names have a rich internal structure and are very much not randomly distributed, therefore domain-specific algorithms will be much better. There is a huge body of work in this field; SOUNDEX was in fact patented in 1918!
