Allowing users with a single name

It looks like both the first and last name fields for a new user are required. Is it possible to change that to support users who go by a single name?
It seems like the solution would be to edit the base Okta profile, but the default attributes are read-only.

Is there something I'm missing, or is this not supported by Okta?

This is not possible as the Okta users have to have a firstname, lastname, username and email address as minimum attributes set. So I'm afraid at least a dummy attribute would be required do these users.

We also would like a solution wherein Okta does not require surname / sn / Last Names.
