There's really only three types of names:

group name

        - tribe
        - family
        - expresses membership

individual name

        - first name
        - middle name
        - distinguishes within "group name" members

assumed name

        - nick
        - warrior name
        - call sign
        - artist name
        - expresses self beyond labelling

It could be argued that both individual and assumed name are
of the same quality. The distinction, however, lies in that
the individual name is meant to be part of the *legal* name
while the assumed name is not.

Yes. Feel free to point out any specific places.

It cannot, directly, as the phrasewheel is a creation of our
own combining several base widgets. I think Sebastian needs
to confirm whether it works for him so I can try to hunt
down the reason.
