    Even better than supporting maiden name: we should have
    generic support for name changes. This way maiden name can
    be deduced implicitly.

    In addition to maiden name, we should be able to record multiple name changes and the reason. E.g. not just marriage, but divorce, immigration/anglicizing, personal preference, legal, etc.

    Maiden name is already included. All females should be entered by maiden name. However, married, or changed names should also be allowed with the ability to show the altered names in a directory listing. A special character could be used to indicate a married or otherwise changed name, and the individual should be listed twice. For example Mary Jones marries Smith, she should be listed as Jones, Mary and *Smith, Mary with the asterisk indicating this is a married name.
