    I've got a problem with address book which I believe is originating from mail. For some of my contacts I only like to have their first name (or don't have their last name) such as mum & dad (yeh I'm aussie :)), my girlfriends name etc and whenever I email them their name appears twice in their contact card in address book. Ie, Mum will become Mum Mum.

    I delete the second appearance and It just comes back next time I email them.

    I have tried permissions, onyx etc but can't solve it.

    Is anyone else having these problems? Thanks

    I've had this problem ever since I got my macbook in may and can't find anywhere that discusses it.

    Check the entries in Address Book to see that they haven't all mysteriously been added twice. :)

    Last name appear twice in address book

    OMG!!! I'm having the same problem. I'm having the same exact problem. I thought it was a syncing problem at first with my Iphone 7 after syncing my contacts displays the same thing. It's very frustrating and annoying. I lost count on how many times I've deleted last names over & over & I get the same thing. I want my adress book to appear first name then last name ONCE! anyone got any solutions. Please help me.

    :confused: :(
