Default Add prefix to .csv from excel

I'm creating a large file of contacts in excel which will be saved as .csv and imported to my contacts in gmail. That's done. I've named and number figured out, but I can't figure out how to add a prefix.

I've tried "prefix", "name prefix", and "prefix name" and under all those variations it shows up in the notes of the contact rather than filling in the prefix field.

This doesn't seem to be an Excel issue, or even an issue relating to how one might add a prefix to some data, since you already know how to do that. Rather, it seems more likely to be a problem of formatting data according to gmail's requirements. From what you're describing, it seems you are prefixing the data instead of naming the column heading appropriately.
