Edit friends name.
I want to edit the name of my friend as I want it so that i can distinguish between them and find out who he is looking at his name as some of my friends have the same name it is really becoming tough for me.
I can see how this would be a huge help for people who have many friends with the same name who refuse to add their last name to their accounts! This isn’t on our roadmap yet, but it’s something we’ll consider in the future.
I second this request. Having friends with all sorts of naming conventions for their accounts drive the OCD me crazy! Especially when a few of my friends with the same first name are in the same group and they refuse to list their last names. Very, very annoying. I would like an option to edit names in the way that only appears to me, like a nickname that I give each account where only I can see.
Yes please allow this feature and to also be able to edit and delete friends off the list no longer needed please.

Some other ideas. If I clear a friend's nickname then it should revert back to their preferred name. The initial starting point for a new nickname should come from the preferred name. This is how IM works where the login name is different from the desired alias or local aliases. In addition to the problem of having two "Tom"s to distinguish between, I personally prefer proper names for all my contacts for consistency. Right now if my friend has a name like "Fat Albert" I would like to remove the ambiguity and add a nickname like "Albert Chow".
