The Contact object has a field called "Name", the field is apparently composed of three other fields, "Salutation", "First Name" and "Last Name", which don't show at all under Contacts > Fields & Relationships in the Object Manager (Technically, they do show in the classic version albeit they can't be modified as far as I know.
They also appear in the field reference.
How should I be able to tell this is how it works? I frankly found out by sheer luck while trying to make an API call for lastName, which I didn't expect to work. I assume there ought to be some place in Lightning Experience I can look into to find things like API handles for those records, am I just not seeing it?
