i just don't vibe with last names why are they required

hey to all software devs out there
names should be handled as:
a free text unicode field with a generous max length and no validation.
do not require (last) names without good reason
if possible, make the purpose of the field clear when filling it in, i.e. put an example email or whatever you are actually using it for next to it.

and also, make it clear if legal names are required. make life a little easier for trans people in the process.

feel free to add to this thread.

@julialuna also, changeable.

names are changeable.

people change names

not immutable
not permanent
not lacking a form to change name
not having to talk with the admins to hand-code a query to change your name
update name button no questions asked
change names
