I would suggest making his name Cristóbal Colón and his display name Christopher Columbus. Cristóbal / Christopher Colón / Columbus really messy and hard on the eyes.

I disagree. The name must be Cristóbal Colón only and display name can be empty. I think this is what the convention names said, isn't it?

I much prefer Cristóbal Colón as well. Christopher Columbus was a concession to others. In America, most Americans wouldn't even recognize Cristóbal Colón, sad to say.

Why not put Christopher Columbus in as a "nickname" ? That way it can be found and the real name discovered ... and us USers educated.
