Alternate Names

I know I CAN put this in NAME field and choose a preferred name; and I know I can use aka where needed.

But suppose I want to keep the NAME field clear for ONLY the preferred name but I still want to keep track of other possible names for a person. [For instance a PAF file allows only one name for a person, and my initial tree came from my mother's PAF file.]

Should I make a custom field for that, or just put it in a note for the name fact. I don't mind having a lot of information in my notes.

Sorry.. ftm 2012.

And I expect this has been answered but the search on this message board isn't very good.
