I'm a "Mrs. Carey Barzeski" even for my wife type of person. A few people have the nickname field filled out, and many have avatars/profile pics. If they're a Dr., that is their title, and I just have to remember whether they identify as male or female. 😄

I'm pretty anal retentive about having first/last name for all my contacts. I have a lot of work related contacts from when I worked as a consultant, so I like to make sure the company field is filled out. If I need additional context for a contact, I will put it in parentheses with their first name, e.g., Todd (electrician), or Mike (golf), etc.

It’s almost an even split between Firstname Lastname and Nickname Combo for me, with a random splattering of contacts I’ve been sent from other people that are formatted their way because I never bothered to change it.

Mostly firstname lastname.  No titles;  if I did, somewhere between a third and a half of my active contacts would have the prefix Dr. and that would just be confusing.  A few are in there as pseudonyms;  even though no one goes through my phone, it's just in case as I don't think they'd want their personal number getting released through my carelessness.   A few are missing last names, usually if I don't know that information about them for some reason, and a few have reminders if I only sort of know them or if there are two or more people I know with the same first-name last-name combination.  

Scrolling through the contact list, I have a ton of people I haven't had any communication with, phone or otherwise, in over a decade.  

The only time I have ever known how I'm stored in someone else's phone was back in college when I, at some point, found out that my then-girlfriend had me stored in her phone as "Bozo."

Typically First, Last but still frequently I will use first name with qualifier (similar option 4) as in “Amy - work” vs “Amy - church” or something like that, like @Colins69 was saying. 
 

as type “A” as I am, I just realized that I’m not super consistent on this.

This is mine also.

Mostly First and Last Name. If it's someone I want to remember associated with a business it might be like Jay (Henderson Construction). 

This is mine also

My colleagues are company name then their name and in certain cases their role/department/deal etc.  Most others are first name and a reference.  I also tend to put the place they live in, especially with colleagues and golf buddies.  I rarely use surnames but will occasionally do that when necessary

    • Every year they have a "big deal" hickory tournament south of here in Oregon.  Totally fascinates me.  Hickory clubs, dressing the part, flasks etc.   Personally, I'll take my hickory on the BBQ pit... USHO/2021 – Northwest Hickory Players  
    • I was always a big Mighty Mouse fan:  
    • Well, with their QB back, Penn State decided to lay an egg. Though, with the new college football overtime rules (going to 2-pt conversions after the 3rd OT), they went to 9 OT!!!! There was a point that neither team converted on a 2-pt conversion a combined 8 times in a row! No one could get 3-yards! I am more upset that this devalues Penn State when Ohio State probably trounces them. 
    • Shorter flight, no spin. Gotta land it before the green a lot and let bounce it on. I like hitting the driver. I find it really forces me to swing smooth with a mild tempo. You don’t really use the Wedge(Niblick) around the greens other than when you are forced to flop it over something, which is tough to do. Often you will use a Mashie which is lofted similar to a 7 iron around the greens. The biggest learning curve is just in hitting the ball cleanly. The front edge on these clubs is very sharp.
