re: Awesome points, Carly. I think it'll be a long ways before we can move away from the first/last name standard, but what are your thoughts on prefer...
 

I think preferred name/nickname/display name fields are a great idea! It's a great way to let people choose how they'd like to be addressed. I personally have a lot of friends who go by nicknames or middle names and so on, so I think also specifying that you can pick something other than your first name to be addressed by is a nice touch, also.
