Yes! All of the person name fields on the document template include the same list of field values and syntax requirements. It's important to note that multiple values need to be separated by a comma and a space. For example:

  1. Herbert George Wells with the preferred name "H.G" would display as H.G. Wells using "preferred_name, last_name"
  2. To get Wells, H.G., you would need the syntax "last_name_with_comma, preferred_name"
