The Display format option gives you the possibility to configure how names (firstname and lastname) of users and contacts are being shown in various places.

Administrator settings

Administration - System - System settings - Basic settings - Display format

Extensions will display the name according to DISPLAY_FORMAT possible placeholders are "(firstname)" and "(lastname)" and the name is created using sprintf. E.g. a DISPLAY_FORMAT %(firstname)1.1s %(lastname)s will result in sprintf("%1.1s %s",$firstname,$lastname. A placeholder can not be used more than once.
