    Do you have contact cards set up for them? If so, have you checked them to make sure they are correct? Are all your contacts doing that way, or just one or two? You don't offer enough information. Have you tried deleting the contact, then adding it back?

    I'm assuming the contacts are associated with your Gmail account. If so, you 'may' have to delete the gmail account from your device, and when asked if you want to keep the contacts on the device or delete them from the device, choose to delete them from the device. Afterwards, reconfigure gmail on your device and make sure to enable the toggle next to contacts in the Mail settings. Also make sure that Google is your displayed as your default account, if it is. Your contacts you have stored on Google's servers should sync back to your device. Now try to compose an iMessage and see if the name appears.

    The contact card is just a contact in your contacts with info and etc. Some call it a vCard.

    Login to your gmail account via a computer, and then export the contacts. After that, send the contacts to yourself via email and then open the email message containing the exported file on your iPad. Tap on the exported file. You should be prompted to import the contacts into the Contacts app.
