    To start, this isn't a huge deal, just something that I noticed that I would like to change/fix if possible.

    I recently got married (last October) and my wife's name still shows her last name in text/imessage threads. It is not this way under contacts. I can delete the thread entirely, find her contact, send a message from there, and as soon as it is sent it shows her maiden name. Is this an issue with how the iMessage server has her name saved?

    The iMessage server retains no contact information. It's a problem with your phone.

    That's where my usefulness stops. Try resetting all settings by going to the settings app->general->reset->reset all settings
