In spanish speaking countries, at least, a system of two lastnames is used, that is "primary" and "second". Thus, the plural form of the word 'lastname' should be used in the spanish localized version of the edit contact form: "Apellidos".

I think it is fine as it is right now. The most used expression in spanish is "nombre y apellido", so using "Apellido" weather there is one or two.

@MarcoB I've have never seen it as "apellido" unless refering to a single surname.

We'll check this from contact card and also from accounts and startupwizard that use last name field.

In Sailfish OS version this bug has not been fixed.

Rigoberto: what you say may be true for Spain, but not to all Spanish speaking countries, it isn't true to Spanish nationals not born in Spain either, such as those who naturalised there. You should rephrase this as having an additional field if you want the plural. This said, this is very low priority...
