I would call it http://schema.org/name, but yes, it's a single
property, not two properties.

The classic example is (addressbook contact) 'title' versus (document)
'title'. Schema.org simply has 'name' instead of (document)'title'.
Some contact schemas have 'honorificPrefix' for (contact)title. It's
usually possible to find an alternative word or phrase. This can be
annoying for vocabulary managers and sometimes the word is not
perfect, but it simplifies the data model.
