How do I remove this prefix field from the checkout in Magento 2.2?

When Googling this it appears there used to be an admin setting that has since been moved/removed:

For the enterprise version of Magento:

For those who comes here from google and do not seen corresponding field in the store configuration:

You can check the Magento_CustomerCustomAttributes module where the fields street_lines, prefix_show, middlename_show, suffix_show, dob_show, taxvat_show, gender_show are disabled in the file magento/module-customer-custom-attributes/etc/adminhtml/system.xml. With that module all this attributes with its settings available now in the:

Stores > Attributes > Customer


Stores > Attributes > Customer Address

menu view

There you can set up the attribute's visibility and another options:

visibility options

Then if you already set up prefix/suffix options in the Name and Address Options:

name and address options / prefix options

you will see the prefix as dropdown on the frontend (checkout):

prefix dropdown in address form on checkout


Login on admin panel go to Stores -> Configuration -> Customer -> Customer Configuration

Change Prefix to no under the Name and Address options Stores -> Configuration

Customer -> Customer Configuration

Change the Prefix to no under the name and address options

  • What version of Magento are you on? I don't have that option

@Athul Vijayan that is only for customer registration form and it is not there anymore in the newer versions.

The Path is in Stores-> (Settings)Configuration -> Customers (tab) -> Customer Configuration -> Name and Address Options -> Show Prefix.

There is an image to show it.


Set them to no, and clear the cache.
