General: custom name refinement
*The {{man label|Sort as}} and {{man label|Display as}} determine how the name appears in the People View and the reports. The sort allows you to override the name pattern set in the Gramps preferences in the sorting of the name. For example, you suddenly have a branch of Swedish names with given and patronymic, but the rest of your database sorts names on Family name, Given. You can indicate here to sort this name always as Patronymic, Given.
: Here you can make sure this person is sorted according to a custom name format (extra formats can be set in the Preferences).
: The display {{man label|Display as}} allows you to say how the name is displayedlisted. You might, for example, want to sort a name in based on a specific mannerperson's given or surname, but still have the display show an honorific title before that name. More customization of the name which display can be [[Gramps_5.1_Wiki_Manual_-_Settings#Display|set in your preferences]].
: The Person Tree view groups people under the primary surname. You can override this by setting here a group value. You will be asked if you want to group this person only or all people with this specific primary surname.
*The {{man label|Date}} can provide information on the validity of this name -- use date spans as necessary. The edit date icon opens the [[Gramps_5.1_Wiki_Manual_-_Entering_and_Editing_Data:_Detailed_-_part_1#Editing_dates|Date Editor]]. Eg. for a Married Name, enter the date that the name is first used or the marriage date.
