With database queries you usually already know the names and you're
querying just for the contents:

  select name, age from PersonalInfo where status = 'active'

and then

    <name>Jane Smith</name>

I didn't get the "person", "name", or "age" strings out of the
database: they're hard-coded in my filter.

All the best,
