Not sure about the name display, I think that may ultimately be related to screen size and resolution and the display font size, but I seem to recall that if you have no entry for a Date of Birth ie the field is left blank (important) and you have a christening (baptism) fact date, that FTM will use the Christening/Baptism date.

Try taking the "unknown" out of your Date of Birth entry for a couple of people (ie leave it empty) that you have the alternative christening info and see what happens?

You can display christening in the RH editing panel via the customise view
