    It's mandatory to add firstname and lastname while creating customer. The one way which you can use for this is:- create a hidden field for firstname and lastname and add some static value in it.. like Guest User or Test User – temper Aug 20 '19 at 10:10

Firstname and Lastname are mandatory fields for the customer, So you have to set some value for these fields during registration, at least some dump value like (-), etc..

So,if you DO NOT want to provide these two fields value during hitting the API point /V1/customers then you have to work on Magento\Customer\Api\AccountManagementInterface,Create a plugin on createAccount() and set some dump value to Firstname and Lastname to this field.

Plugin Class

namespace StackExchange\Magento\Plugin;

use Magento\Customer\Api\Data\CustomerInterface;

class AccountManagementPlugin 
    public function beforeCreateAccount(
        \Magento\Customer\Api\AccountManagementInterface $subject,
        CustomerInterface $customer,
        $password = null,
        $redirectUrl = ''
        // Set dump value to - to firstName and last Name
        if($customer->getFirstname() == null){
        if($customer->getLastname() == null){
        return [$customer,$password,$redirectUrl];
