When adding a Maiden name on a constituent record under Personal information, it is automatically added as Alias, but left Type is blank and there is no option to select a Type.

When adding a Maiden name on a constituent record under Personal information, it is automatically added as Alias, but left Type is blank and there is no option to select a Type.  This could cause duplicate records to be created,
This is functioning as it should.  There are a few reasons why it functions this way, such as:

- This allows them to perform a constituent search for a maiden name without an extra step.
- Duplicate detection considers Aliases, which would be beneficial regardless of whether or not the Alias had a type

Any changes in this functionality that are needed can be addressed by a customization, if desired.
