I would like consistency on when Name and Nickname are used

Presently many location list a users name as First "Nickname" Last, but some location, such as their contact card list it as Nickname Last. I would like all locations that list users names to match a consistent pattern.

    I agree. Student's first name should never be replaced by their nickname. Many of our new students have nicknames and when our advisors are searching for them in their advising groups, they do not yet know the students by their nicknames, making it difficult for them to find them.

    Completely agree ! It should be consistent as   First "Nickname" Last. The default should never be Nickname Last.

    There is also a 3rd way a person is listed...If looking at a person's relationship, it list as First, Last, totally disregarding the Nickname.  So, so many people in our area go by their middle name and choose that as their preferred or "Nickname".  Consistency & accuracy is needed.
