At this moment the first letter of each
word in the surname is automatically upper-cased on save. However, a lot of Dutch surnames start with (a) prefix(es) which should not start with an upper-cased letter, some examples: “Bob de Bouwer” “Liesbeth van List” “Jaap van den Akker” “Joost van der Plas”.
Q2 - Who is impacted?
This only impacts Dutch users and possibly users of other countries using the same/similar naming constructs.
Q3 - Why is it important and/or urgent?
This is kind of trivial, only a bit of a nuisance, but would be nice to have addressed for quite a lot of Dutch (potential) users and possibly user from other countries.
Q4 - What is your proposed solution? (optional)
I see two possible solutions to this;
- Add a “surname prefix(es)” field besides the first- and lastname
- Disable automatic formatting of the surname in which the first letter in (each
wordof) the surname is capitalized.
