Merge customer name fields

Merge customer name fields

Feature request from kassner, posted on GitHub Feb 06, 2015

Hi,

Can you guys think about merging all customer's name-related fields (prefix, firstname, middlename, lastname and suffix) into a single name field? I think this makes magento a more international product.

Thanks!
