Source Citation Link for "Name" Overlooked?

Source Citation Link for "Name" Overlooked?

Sourcing for arguably (please don't) one of the 3 most basic and important aspects of anyone's genealogical record (Name, DOB, Date of Passing) is not easily ascertained from within the profile page as currently designed.

Wouldn't it be common sense to incorporate a link to sourcing for the "Name" fact just as the sourcing for all other profile facts are a mouse-click away?

I'm not sure just how to best implement or present this suggested link, simply convinced that it would be a most welcome improvement to what is, IMHO, a design oversight.

BrklynBridge,

Nice observation. Thanks for taking time to suggest it. I'll pass this suggestion along to one of the people here responsible for the Person Profile page.

Great idea. Also adding a description field for Name would be helpful.
