(1) I can't search or display middle names.

(2) I can't search for any but the first "word" (name) within a given or last name. Ie: if a person's given name is "Mary Ann", then Alfred won't display "Mary Ann" if I search for "Ann".

 

Searching for "Mary" http://d.pr/i/iHGm/1de65Won

Searching for "Ann" http://d.pr/i/99I5/1DLlPkU3

 

I only use Google Account sync in Contacts.app in OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.2.

I am using v2 b137

 

Is it me? Anyone else?

V2 doesn't yet search middle names in Contacts, but I've added a ticket so this will be added before v2 comes out of beta :)

Thank you!

 

Do you know if problem (2) (regarding search for the second name of a given name (or last name)) also will be solved before v2 comes out of beta?

Yes, you'll be able to search for Ann and Mary Ann will show up :)

This is now fixed in b141, so auto-update for this fix :)

I don't think problem (2) was fixed. I have b150.

 

As Alfred now works directly with the (more reliable) Contacts API, searching in this way would add significant noise to the results, so this won't be implemented at this time.

 

I've added a note for Andrew to consider this, but for now, you'll need to search from the beginning of a name field, whether first, middle, last name or any of the other fields like nickname and company.

 

You could always add a nickname if you often search for Mary Ann by the name Ann! :)
