Contact linking naming issue
How do I change the default name on a contact? The reason I ask is because with my girlfriend I had her name set as Becki but it keeps going to her Facebook name Rebecca. But my Mom who I have set as Mom and I also linked just like I did with my girlfriends, doesn't go to her full name as listed on Facebook.
Any idea why this is? Thanks

I did select Becki and link it to Rebecca, which is the same thing I did with Mom to her Facebook which in the case of Mom worked fine. But I also thought that maybe the linking process had something to do with it. So I tried unlinking Becki and Rebecca and relinking them in reverse, as going to Rebecca and linking to Becki and again no change. It just seems odd and what I am also curious about is what does Android use to determine a contacts name?
Oh and lastly, I did just get the phone Thursday and downloaded my contacts from Google which I had synced to my Blackberry. But I did have to link the contacts like I mentioned above on the droid as the linking didn't carry over from the Blackberry to Google to Droid. I don't have any contact apps other then whatever the droid came with out of the box.

Re: Contact linking naming issue
I have this same problem, but with Twitter. My Facebook contacts link properly. Once I link to their Twitter, it shows their Twitter name in my contacts list, and nothing seems to fix it!
