Contacts / Facebook Sync Problem

I'm got my Droid sync'ing to my Google account and Facebook....I have an aunt Kathy and my mother's name is Kathryn, the only thing they have in common is the first three letters of their name, however Google contacts wants to merge them into one contact. I was able to get around this problem by renaming Kathryn to FooBar, letting it sync & create the contacts, then rename FooBar to Kathryn, but when I attempt the facebook sync it puts my mom's profile under my aunt's account. Is there anyway to manually control the facebook sync'ing?

sadly, so far it looks like there isn't. it is based on the spelling of the name. so as long as the names aren't the exact same names, just spell them EXACTLY like they are spelled on facebook and it'll sync it up.

i really hope they add a manual sync option similar to the blackberry facebook connect feature in the BB app. that was so much easier imo.
