Please add more detail to Person::getPersonName() behavior

    Details

      Low

      Description

      The Person::getPersonName() documentation says:

      "public PersonName getPersonName()

      Convenience method to get the "preferred" name for the person. Returns a blank PersonName object if no names are given.

      Returns:
      Returns the "preferred" person name.
      "

      Could you add more detail for the expected behavior when there are no preferred names and more than one non-preferred name? Which non-preferred name will it return? Will it always return that name, or is it affected by other factors (e.g. order names were added, last edited time, etc.)
