    My dutch friends with 2 words in their last names such as "Van" Something are showing up without the "Van" in messaging and the phone app. Is there some way to fix this?
    Or is Palm just racist against the Dutch!

    This is America pal. Just because your Dutch friends have funny names doesn't mean it's the Pre's fault.

    A "van" is something you live in anyway, down by the river, or a sneaker.

    Dutch, Danish, Denmark, it's all the same to me.

    They do make good beer though...<Sips his Heineken>

    Hopefully Palm will fix this before The Netherlands gets the Pre.

    If their name is something like, "Dudeman Van Gard" why not just set it to say "Dudeman VanGard"? That could easily remedy the situation, and only takes out a tiny space in the name.

    You can do "Name Details" for any Google Contact on the Edit screen to make sure it happens right.

    From the Pre:

    1. Choose the contact and hit Edit.
    2. From the Contact menu, choose "Name Details".
    3. Fix the name and the back gesture to save.

    I had a few posts about this (and how universal search handles names from different profiles). Check out http://forums.precentral.net/palm-pr...ml#post1829616 for more info

    Losing the first last name could cause problems. Example: take the Van out of the **** Van Dyke Show, and you would have an entirly different show.

    Palm is off the hook on this one.
    Btw the palm racist thing was a joke, but you should never joke about racism
