Some of my contacts names appear a lighter shade in People application. Also these contacts do not follow the general sorting by first, second etc. letter in name. They are sorted OK by first letter, but appear always on top of darker shade contacts in name list although their second letters might be lower order in alphabet. Anyone knows what is the meaning of this separation?

PS.I have exported all my ~1000 contacts from N9 as vcf and imported them in Jolla.

I am not 100% sure but these contacs could be the ones synched from your google account. If you have added Google account then check if synching of contacs (or something, cant check the exact name since dont have the Jolla at hand right now) is selected. Deselect it and see if these contacts disappear.

@ZeiArr I have not allowed google contact sync on my Jolla. I have my contacts on Google account, but I never do sync, I always export(from N9)-import(Google) manually.

Could you check the details of these contacts please? Could it be the field for the last name is empty?

These contacts in lighter shade are contacts with only the last Name. go to edit and fill out both fields (first and last Name).
