: People are displayed according to the name format given in the Preferences (the default).
: Here you can make sure this person is displayed according to a custom name format . ''(extra More name formats can be set selected in the {{man menu|Edit ->Preferences...}} {{man label|[[Gramps_5.1_Wiki_Manual_-_Settings#Display|Display]]}} tab or customized using the [[Gramps_5.1_Wiki_Manual_-_Settings#Display_Name_Editor|Display_Name_Editor]].).

*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 More name formats can be set selected in the {{man menu|Edit ->Preferences...}} {{man label|[[Gramps_5.1_Wiki_Manual_-_Settings#Display|Display]]}} tab or customized using the [[Gramps_5.1_Wiki_Manual_-_Settings#Display_Name_Editor|Display_Name_Editor]].)''.: The {{man label|Display as}} allows you to say how the name is listed. You might, for example, want to sort a name in based on a person's given or surname, but still have the display show an honorific title before that name. ''(More customization of name display formats can be selected in the {{man menu|Edit ->Preferences...}} {{man label|[[Gramps_5.1_Wiki_Manual_-_Settings#Display|set in your preferencesDisplay]]}} tab or customized using the [[Gramps_5.1_Wiki_Manual_-_Settings#Display_Name_Editor|Display_Name_Editor]].)''
: 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.
