There are at least two sets of pre-exisiting work in this area.

An organisation created a standard for form fieldnames to do exactly that. I
don't recall the name, and I can't find their website.

Microsoft also has integrated vCard support in IE
ference/properties/vcard_name.asp). You add an attribute to a field and it
will automatically fill out the appropriate entry from the vCard in your
address book marked as yourself.
