Bug Description

If you edit a contact using and try to clear any of the name fields (first, last, middle names, title, suffix), it will be reverted to its original value after submit. All other changes are accepted.
An example: I have a contact with Mr (title) John (first name) Smith (last name). Then I change last name to "Black" and clear the "title" field then click "Save". What I expect is new name to be "John Black" but actually it results in "Mr John Black".

same here. cannot unset a name field after accidently having set that field's value to something wrong.
