Is they a way to send a text message to multiple recipients but include details taken from their contact card and have them automatically inserted into the text when it's sent? Something like the following:

Merry Xmas [contact name]!

Where the name of the contact is filled in automatically. I'm aware that there are apps that allow mail merging of e-mails but I couldn't find any similar functionality for texts.

I am not aware of any stock messaging apps amongst any of the ROMs that will do that, but it looks like there are a bunch of apps in the market that will (Like SMeSsaggia bulk customized SMS or Group SMS, or Group SMS and Scheduler.)

To send a test to multiple recipients, just press the comma , button after each phone number. Once done, just send. All recipient numbers will line up on top of the phone number window after each comma.
