Can I get the customer's first and last name separately? Unfortunately, we do not provide a way to obtain the customer's first and last name separately. This is because of the way we collect customers' full names when they create a new Amazon account. To obtain the first name of most customers, e.g. for the purposes of greeting them, you can split the name you obtain on the 'space' character and use the first segment. You should also account for name prefixes such as 'Mr.' or 'Mrs' and use the second name segment in the event the customer chose to register with a prefix in their full name.
