Using different field to name an object

 

I'm creating a new Lead layout in which the default Name (with FirstName, Last Name) field is not the one I would like to use to be the name of my Lead object items. Is there a way to tell the system to use a custom field I defined for the name, or at least append my prefered field value to the Name field?

Not strictly speaking, no. You could create a workflow to append a value into first or last name, but some care would have to be taken so that it doesn't repeat itself.
