Default Incoming Caller ID Name, 4.1

Is there a way to control what name shows up when an incoming number is displayed? I may have the same number in many different contacts, but only want a specific contact name to display when that number is calling back--is there a way to control that?

Does that make sense?

I think it will display the first name according to the alphabet. For example, I have a friend and his company listed separately. When he calls from a land line in his office, it shows up as his company calling rather than him calling. Alphabetically, his company is listed first. Same thing happens with other duplicate numbers I have for entered for different people. I haven't done much research into it, but I don't think there's a way to change it.
