It is not a special character, you fucking imperialist, it is my (first) last name.

Same problem here, a lot of systems shit the bed at even having a double-barrelled name. >.>

@cattebune After wikipedia-ing "double-barrelled name", I saw that's another problem we Spaniards always have: the usual thing in Spanish names is to have two surnames (the first of the father and the first of the mother). So we don't even really have a last name, but two! But they don't usually mind having a space in the "Last name" field 🤷‍♂️

@xiroux
That's usually the work around I have to use, do you ever run into the whole last name too long issue? Like there's a character limit for names in some places I tend to run into. Seems a lot of Devs don't expect People to have anything other than Bob Smith as their name...

@cattebune @xiroux I hear stories of people with South Asian names that are too long for the fields.
