This paper presents an approach for predicting context sensitive entities exemplified in the domain of person names. Our approach is based on building a weighted context but also a weighted people graph and predicting the context entity by extracting the best fitting sub graph using a spreading activation technique. The results of the experiments show a quite promising F-Measure of 0.99.
