Cool, I'll do  this on the person page and leave him slightly broke on the
listings where the nesting isn't possible cos of the separation
Beethoven, Ludwig van

I've asked around and the label "Onomastic prefix" has been suggested:


But again it doesn't seem to differentiate between attached and detached

So I'll stick with family-name-prefix for now (it's easier to spell for one)
unless anyone has a better idea
