Wiki ID's next to Names in profiles while in Edit Mode. [closed]

Would anyone else find it helpful to have ID's next to names while in Edit mode on profiles?  I have merged several profiles that end up having multiples of the same name. I have to click on each name to get the ID for that person in order to merge. It would save me a lot of clicks if the ID was next to the name.

i.e.  currently the profile shows children as:  John, John, Mark, John, Mark.

I would like to see  John-32, John-104, Mark-48, John-1932, Mark-49

Does anyone else think that would help them?

I'm confused. When I'm in edit mode and I click on the Merge duplicates (under the list of family names on the right), I *get* profile numbers by the names.

[duplicates? please merge]

My Bad! 
Yes that is exactly what I was asking for... I cant believe I never noticed it, I bet you just put it in there! lol

I've been taking the long road and clicking on the dublicate names in the edit screen to get the profile id to then go back and merge them.

And I thought I had a great idea!  Thanks Jillaine

Darin, you are not alone.  I was merging for months before I realized that feature was there.

In edit mode, on any given profile, under the list of family members  on the right for:

[duplicates? please merge]

Click on this, and look on the left on the resulting page. You will see all the parents, siblings, spouces and children with thier ID numbers. 

Edit: I guess that's what Jillian said
