Why in gods name do they feel they have to remove the persons last name or last name initial in a text message? As someone who has friends with common names like Mike, Tom, Kelly etc it's so damn annoying that sometimes I have to go through my messages to see who I'm texting. Just leave the god damn last name or last initial there! Sure this is a minor issue, but was it really an aesthetic issue to have the last name there? What was the point in changing something that wasn't broken , but better? The UI should be about displaying relevant information quickly. To me this is another example of Jonny Ive going overboard in his simplicity obsession and taking away from that. Just such a pointless and annoying change. If you want to get rid of the name why not join the 21st century and let there be a picture of the contact in the Message UI?
