For our company's microsites we have a desire to minimize the number of inputs in our Request Info form to increase engagement and reduce time to complete the form. For the user's name we typically only ask for First and Last Name in two separate fields. The data is later cleaned up in a nightly process so that any prefixes and suffixes entered in those fields gets parsed and moved to appropriate fields in the database.
My question is if the lack of prefix and suffix fields forces some users like "Dr. F. John Doe, Jr." into a dilemma where they worry about how we will handle their name if they put all that into the First and Last name fields. Is it better to clutter up the form with additional name inputs to handle these cases?
I know some companies just use one "Full Name" field, but that gets quite difficult to parse accurately across the board for the data to go into the proper database fields.
