Proper way for current last name to be entered

+6 votes
I've been working on the Data Doctor Challenge and I've run across a profile Adie-7 that made me wonder if the way the Current Last Name was being used.   Could someone look at it and tell me if that is the correct way that should be entered?

Hi Cindi

This profile may fall under the Name Fields for European Aristocrats however as a rule of thumb wikitree encourages General Naming Conventions For example William the Conqueror most would know him as this name but his name to the french would be Guillaume De Normandie

I not sure if this answers your question but I hope it helps

Have a great day

I imagine that only his name would be listed and the of Newark and Easter Echt would be entered in the Suffix.
I have to say, I'm a bit ignorant on the policy's surrounding European Aristocrats. However that sounds logical.
I don't know anything about this man.   The profile is managed by several other people (I am not one of them).   I just ran across it while working on the Data Doctor Weekly Challange.  And it didn't look like I thought it should.   Not that I knew what it should look like, so I thought that I would ask, then send or post a message on the profile if it should be changed.
That's what I was thinking too
