Comment(by study):

 The limitation is more significant than merely finding ways to coerce
 users into entering full name in correct format. It reduces users choices
 to which they have become accustomed in using WordPress without BP. There
 they can enter four sets of name information:

 User Name, First Name, Last Name, Nick Name plus, importantly choose which
 of the four will be displayed to the public.

 BuddyPress eliminating these options is a real limitation on user privacy
 and identity control.
