As per the below image contacts sync'd from online servcies are coming through as "Unknown name"

I have used the contacts sync within "Accounts" using Gmail, Outlook.com and Yahoo but keep getting the same behaviour with the resultant contacts. What is causing it?

  • I have the exact same issue with my Galaxy S6 - started roughly 1 Sept 2016 - after the SAMSUNG software/firmware update. Until then, I had no problems at all with my phone, which I bought in spring 2015. In the last two days I spent 40 minutes with a Verizon tech rep and an hour with a SAMSUNG 'tech rep' via live chat. They suggested that my device had certain problems. But I am sending email to SAMSUNG weekly to ask for an explanation. [edited my Moderator Firelord].
