Hello @nicolek957 ,

 

When you import contacts, most options will allow names to be imported alongside them. We'd advise having their name values be separate - first name and last name. For example, when you import your contacts via a file (CSV, XLS, etc.), if you've formatted the file properly it should have the names in columns alongside the corresponding email addresses - the field that determines a unique contact.
