Preferred name section: referred to GEPS 21 for proper purpose of Family 'nickname'
On the [[Gramps_5.1_Wiki_Manual_-_Entering_and_editing_data:_detailed_-_part_3#Name_Editor|Name Editor]] an extra field is available: {{man label|Family Nickname}}. This is a unofficial name given to a family splinter group to distinguish them of from people with the same family namesurname. Often referred to as Farm name and typically references a location where the splinter group resides or pet nameoriginates. (aka sept, sect, camp)
The {{man label|Origin}} and {{man label|Type}} fields provide an "autocompletion" feature: as you type in these fields, a menu appears below the field containing database entries that match your partial input. This gives you a shortcut by letting you select an entry that already exists in the database rather than having to type it all out. You can select the entry using your mouse or using your arrow and '''Enter''' keys.
