What's with the formality?

Why were so many articles titled by formal names? I've attempted to change this, as most people searching this wiki likely won't search for long and formal names (Matthew Paige Damon, Jason Charles Bourne, Nicolette Parsons), but for the most common ones (Matt Damon, Jason Bourne, Nicky Parsons). Testing.
