Nit: when the user is signing up for a new email account, we should auto capitalize the first character and the next character after space.  This usually is going to be the Screen name that will display the name to send emails from.

It's currently lowercase.     Screenshot

1) install nightly unagi build
Gecko  http://hg.mozilla.org/releases/mozilla-b2g18/rev/0e43266ca3c6
Gaia   1890022f3ca36108621a832f31ac5df8bf89a22e
BuildID 20130122070203
2) launch email, setup a new account
3) tap the Your Name box
4) Verify typing in your name is all lowercase

- auto capitalize on the first and last name while typing (and seperated with space)

- name is all lowercase
Bug 825133 has very relevant discussion to this.  The current state of things is that we would need to do this in app logic and that we need to worry about l10n issues, so the idea should be run by l10n people and parameterized by localization settings if we go that route.  If the platform grows extra flags we can set, we should probably put those settings in the l10n properties file with good l10n notes and avoid meddling from app code.

Almost filed this one again!

Requesting l10n feedback on the idea.

We could just auto-capitalize the first letter typed and then nothing after that.

"Dietrich von Ayala" would be a counter example. Also, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Van_de_Graaff_generator.

Note, :l10n is really not an individual, doesn't make sense to needinfo that.

http://www.w3.org/International/questions/qa-personal-names is full of more cultural context around names.
