Separate fields for first, last and middle initial - for credit card processing systems

Currently the field just says "Cardholder Name" and many people have a middle initial on their card. When they enter all 3 things (first, middle, last) the cc processor is automatically putting the middle initial in the last name field. Which means I can't search by last name.

        This change is a start, but we still need that "Middle Initial" field capability in the Contact/Membership data bases.

        The Middle Initial is not defined as a System Field like the Last Name and First Name.

        Consequently, it does not show up when viewing the Contact List. We have many Members/Contacts with the same First and Last Names and need to be able to view the Middle Initial also to select the correct Contact without creating a Saved Search with the Middle Initial as a factor.

        How can we make the Middle Initial a System Field so it will automatically appear in the Contact List as well in the Contact Heading?
