    I came across the same problem too. What's more awkward - for some contacts the original name is kept, while for others the facebook name overrides it.

    I tried many different ways, including changing the name to surname, checking similar names and totally random ones, and it seems there is no clear algorithm on this. Sometimes the system just overrides the name and sometimes it doesn't, think it's an issue worth reporting to SE.

    Cheers
