This will happen when you have multiple contacts with the same number.

Perhaps 3 people with the same home line, or work line for example.

It can sometimes be useful if you only have 2 people using the same home phone line for example, as it will say Bob or Charlie.

If you don't want this to happen when multiple contacts share the same number, you could make a company contact for any numbers that people share.
