Add preferred name to receipt templates

Receipt templates can be edited so that Preferred Names will print to receipts if the patron account includes a preferred name. Otherwise, the primary name will print.

Name keyword

Name keywords primarily allow staff to search a name or part of a name, across all name fields and matches the search string to characters in any position in the name fields. In contrast, other search fields match the characters in order from left to right.
