Recently I received a group iMessage from my friend. Even though the conversation was between just two of us with one person not being part of it at all, I could see everyone’s name in the list of participants. It turns out that this is quite normal for iMessage to display unnecessary contacts as well.
The reason why you are seeing names of people who are not even a part of the conversation is that your iPhone differentiates between “Favorites” and contacts on your phone. You can fix this problem by blocking any unknown people from iMessage while keeping them un-blocked for SMS/MMS.
How To fix iphone iMessage issues
Step 1: Navigate to Settings > Messages and then tap on “Receive At”
Step 2: Tap on “Contacts” and switch off iMessage for all those whose names you want to block. Make sure the button next to their name is switched off. You can also turn-off iMessage for Favorites if required
Note: If you only use SMS/MMS messages, you can switch off iMessage for Favorites only.
Step 3: If there are any unknown contacts whom you don’t want to receive messages from, then go ahead and block their numbers under Settings > Messages > Blocked
