There are multiple ways to search on POC names.

If you are using a classic Whois client (over port 43), the syntax is "p / <name>" where <name> is the name you are searching for.

For example:
whois -h whois.arin.net "p / kosters"

The RESTful interface allows you to search by name using matrix parameters.

For example:
xmllint --format "http://whois.arin.net/rest/pocs;name=kosters"

You can also you "first" or "last" instead of "name" to narrow the search to specific first and last names.

For example:
xmllint --format "http://whois.arin.net/rest/pocs;last=kosters;first=mark"

More information about these types of matrix parameters are available in Section 4.4.2 of our Whois-RWS API manual:

I hope this answers your question.
