duplicate checker for similar contacts not only identical

wondering about a plug in for Act that would offer a more aggressive duplicate checker as follows:

 

When creating a new contact with the name such as "Mill Woods Assembly", if a record already exists with a "similar" name such as "MillWoods Assembly" (without a space in between "Mill" and "Woods"), it would prompt.

 

Similarly, if there was a record such as "The Mill Woods Assembly" and I would attempt to create a new records such as "Mill Woods Assembly" (without the "The"), it would prompt.
