If you move the "Duchess of Marlborough" from the nickname to the other name box, it will read, " Lady Caroline Spencer formerly Russell AKA Duchess of Marlborough". It should be in the Suffix box but that box has a limit as to the length you can place in it. "Duchess of Marlborough" is not a nickname, don't you think?
