How do admins handle when a classmate has completely or partially changed their name and possibly their gender?

I envision this could be partially handled by the addition of a field “Also Known As” (AKA)
Add a field Also Known As (AKA) to handle persons that have changed one or more of their names. I’m not referring to a last name change due to marriage. This refers to those that have changed their entire name Eg Morris Dean is now Zol Fox. Also for people that were known in school by their first or second name but now go by their other given name. Eg Legal name was Mary Jane Smith but in school went by Jane Smith now goes by her given name Mary. This is also related to a need for an additional field “middle name” (mentioned in another of my posts)

You would need to manually add a field called AKA.
