      I have the problem that in my Google address book the display name is always overwritten in the form of first name last name.

      When I right-click on “Create display name” it takes a few seconds until the display name is changed again via sync.

      The fields first name and last name are filled correctly.
      What am I doing wrong?

      this is surely because you use a google address book… this behaviour is forced by Google, which has a very weird CardDAV API…

      Yes, it seems so.
      I have now tried tbsync and it works fine with the original TB Adressbook. So i use this instead.

      !… you sync your Thunderbird address book with TbSync to your Google account ?

      maybe I’ve misunderstood your issue… edit your CardBook address book properties by right clicking on it, then go the last tab (Misc tab)… the display name format is written there… maybe change it there …
