My childs full name is not showing on LDS Tools. He is under 8 years of age but his membership shows his full name (first middle and last) but on LDS Tools it does not it only shows First and Last. Can I change this or is it on the clerk level?

LDS Tools and the LDS.org Directory display the preferred name. If you would like to have your child's full name displayed then contact your ward clerk or ward membership clerk to make the change.

In LDS Tools the names showing in most places is the preferred name (if it exists), but you can see the full name if you are looking at an individual go to their membership information tab. I just checked on my son's device and it looks like that might only show up for leadership. I don't know if it shows up for the head of house or not.
