 Hi @normancates

 Thanks for getting in contact. Before I respond, I will clarify that
 BuddyPress does split up its default "Name" field and syncs it into WP's
 "nickname", "first_name", "last_name", and "display_name" fields. This is
 a pretty basic sync (it splits up the Name field, based on spaces in it).

 Conversely, if you change WP's "display_name" field, that gets sync'd back
 into BuddyPress' default "Name" field.

 I agree it would be neat to be able to drop in WP's default profile fields
 into the BP profile settings (e.g. Biography, etc). As part of that, we'd
 put proper/better syncing controls/behaviour in.

 Is that sort of what you had in mind?
