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.Jukka Aho commented
You have two tickets on this already – one supposedly ”completed” (but did not resolve the issue) and another ”declined” (from years ago) – but the issue remains.
It is very awkward to organize payments by random names entered by other persons since they do not follow any standard format. Some users register themselves with first name only, some others using the Firstname Lastname format. Then there are those who prefer Lastname Firstname, and yet some others with some obscure nickname. While Splitwise is a great service, the names thing is a complete mess until you allow people to organize their friends by renaming them in their personal friends list.Jukka Aho supported this idea ·
