Comment (by normancates):

 Yeah, that's pretty much what I think would be really helpful.

 It already happens with password and email...

 I've never had any joy with WP and BP synchronizing data. It doesn't seem
 to push either way.

 This could be because of my previously mentioned use of Multisites and
 Keeping the themes in each site separate.

 I'm very skeptical of any algorithms ability to correctly decide how to
 deal with a name and split it correctly except in pretty trivial cases.

 I'm sure the reasons for only having Name in Buddypress are lost in the
 mists of antiquity. But I really do think that it should reflect much more
 closely the standard Wordpress profile fields.
