It's falsehoods people, especially programmers, have about names. In short a name should be considered a decorative text field in almost all cases and should not be used for any real analysis as you will invariably not think of a corner case of a name.
As a conclusion to this idea let me ask you is the name McKayla the same name as Mckayla?
*X Æ A-Xii
also, her father? It's a boy afaik

A downstream system really didn't appreaciate it 😂

sbiewald448043dAs a site note, the same @adhdeveloper said about names applies for addresses as well. In Iceland, you can even send letters to remote places by drawing a map on the letter ( https://mobile.twitter.com/loriskum... ).
There are also some examples written here https://mjt.me.uk/posts/... and also https://wiesmann.codiferes.net/word...
jiraTicket145241dWhat did the Stakeholder think was the real issue? Just aesthetics or was this something that caused confusion for customer service or doormen who looked at membership cards or something like that?
ctnqhk89540d@jiraTicket It’s one membership per person. “John and Mary” are two people trying to use one membership. Stakeholder thinks those users are trying to cheat the system. I think it’s not a website issue and this requires manual catching. And going back to my initial question, what if there really is a person who wants to be “John and Mary”? Who am I to limit how a user wants to identify?
