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 and also do not ask about gender or sex unless you _really_ need it for some reason and you make it clear _why_ are they required.
