i personally have first/last name for everyone, except for mom, dad, home.. but i like the look of just 1 name instead.

however, i have multiple mike's, amanda's, etc.. not sure how to differentiate them

First/last name + all other info I know about them. I spent a couple of hours at one point doing this :)

Same as the OP. First name and last name except for my parents and grand parents. Looks clean and professional. Sometimes I have to really think about certain contacts though if its someone I rarely talk too lol.

Living in Asia, I still don't get all this first name and last name stuff, so I just key in the names as I am reading them and rely on search to locate them as desired. :p
