Let's come to a consensus.

Best Practices for Names, Emigrants from England to the United States.

This is the field order of entry:

a. first name
b. middle name
c. last name
c. maiden name
d. suffix
e. display name

In addition, there are:

- the "nickname" field (proposed: relabeled to "also known as")
- the text of the "about me" (soon to be searchable in Geni)

Fields that are not available:

- prefix
- title

the N.B.: "display name" is currently an issue in merges as it is not exposed in all views.

A little reference guide to "What is a legal name?"
