Given names

I think it would be a nice addition to have a second first name field for given names.

You can put several names in that first box. I have my First and middle names in there and it comes out fine.

I have Catholic famliy members that have names like Gerardus Johannes Fransiscus Maria, the calling name would be Gerard. If I put all that in the First Name field it does not come out fine.
In the Netherlands the 'calling name' and 'given names' are considered two different things.

If you use FTB there is a way to put the 'roepnaam'--English:  nickname and it is carried over to on-line between quotation marks.

Thanks for your reply, Ingrid.
I have been Googling a bit and found out that (of course) I am not the only one who's struggling with this. I also found that there has been no effort made by MyHeritage to accomodate this. There's some Dutch software that has this feature but it's an windows software program. I like the online setup of MyHeritage so I can share it with others.
I'll live with it, this is not a serious hobby of me (yet), so it's not thát important to me.
