Name vs First and Last

Posted 11 months ago by packy

I have been wondering about this for a while. Every fresh install I do for an App I always end up changing the name field to first_name and last_name. Is there any reason Laravel doesnt do this already? Should I just use name. I notice most the time I never have too many situations where I can list the users by first name or last name, I have just always done that.

I also end up adding avatar to users ... I feel like this should be included these days.
