Approximate String Matching

Has anyone had the need to create an approximate string matching algorithm
to search for data in studio?  I have to make a search on a native database
based on the user input and bring matches.  I need an approximate match of
around 75%.  So if the input is 'Mike Smith', I can bring Matches that
include Mike Smyth, Mike Peterson-Smith, M. Smithson,  etc. so we have room
for misspelling, transpositions and omissions (like searching for Smth
still brings Smith), etc.

If you have something already done that I can adapt please contact me.
