This is a really dumb question, but unless I add a picture to a person's contact card, how am I supposed to know which person a message came from in a group thread when their initials are the same? My mom and my sister have the same initials and I don't have pictures of them in my contact cards. I have them each of them in a group chat in Messages.app on my iMac. Their nicknames are shown in the "To:" at the top and in the selected conversation in the panel on the left, but when they each send messages, the message bubbles all come from a gray circle with first & last initial. How am I supposed to know which one of them sent a message in the group chat?
Hovering only shows the time a message was sent. I've search the menus, the preferences, and google and nothing shows me how to differentiate the two without adding a photo to their contact cards. I've tried resizing, double-clicking the thread to open in a new window... Is there a way to show their full or even just their first name instead of their initials where the message bubbles are?
