Have split first and second lastnames

Project Description

Partner second lastname

This module was written to extend the functionality of partner_firstname to support having a second lastname for contact partners.

In some countries, it’s important to have a second last name for contacts.

Contact partners will need to fill at least one of the name fields (First name, First last name or Second last name).


You can configure some common name patterns for the inverse function in Settings > Configuration > General settings:

  • Lastname SecondLastname Firstname: For example ‘Anderson Lavarge Robert’
  • Lastname SecondLastname, Firstname: For example ‘Anderson Lavarge, Robert’
  • Firstname Lastname SecondLastname: For example ‘Robert Anderson Lavarge’

After applying the changes, you can recalculate all partners name clicking “Recalculate names” button. Note: This process could take so much time depending how many partners there are in database.

You can use _get_inverse_name method to get firstname, lastname and second lastname from a simple string and also _get_computed_name to get a name form the firstname, lastname and second lastname. These methods can be overridden to change the format specified above.


To use this module, you need to:

  • Edit any partner’s form.
  • Make sure the partner is not a company.
  • Enter firstname and lastnames.

If you directly enter the full name instead of entering the other fields separately (maybe from other form), this module will try to guess the best match for your input and split it between firstname, lastname and second lastname using an inverse function.

If you can, always enter it manually please. Automatic guessing could fail for you easily in some corner cases.

Known issues / Roadmap

Patterns for the inverse function are configurable only at system level. Maybe this configuration could depend on partner language, country or company, as discussed at this OCA issue
