I keep seeing this weird field "Mailing Name"

What is an ambiguous address, and what is a mailing name?  You don’t mean “addressee” do you?

Hello Ali,
where do you encounter this field?

In Contacts, the contact maintenance screen, first tab.  There is an address field with two buttons beside it. (Work, Home)  I paste information into the address field and often it displays a dialog box with the address parsed into discrete fields.  The top field, usually empty, but not always is labelled “Mailing Name”.  What it appears to be picking up is the first line of the address…

Hello Ali,
I see, as part of an actual mailing address, the Mailing name is as suggest - the Name part of the whole Mailing address.

Regards,
Olivia

Must be an Americanism, I’ve never heard the addressee called that.  Shouldn’t the mailing address be Full name / Title / Company / Postal Address ?
