[Gnumed-devel] modification request: Name presentation (was Patient scre

I will spare the screen shot, hoping it unnecessary to explain the following problem:

a front desk staff bring up a patient "Ngan Nwan An" in her workflow, and needs to contact an outside agency who asks the patient's name, to which the answer is "Ngan Nwan An".

Only to be asked "is Nwan the middle name, or is it the last name Nwan An?"

Answer: wait... I'll need to click over to Patient details

Is there any reason (local custom) to have settled on the name presentation as

"Mr/Mrs First [Middle] [other Given names] [one-or-two-part] Last name"?

The alternative

        Last, Title First +- more

would be clearer.
