Custom Objects - Link field missing lead fields

I'm trying to setup a new custom object that would link to our lead/contacts on first and last name. Our lead/contacts all have first name and last name fields. But when trying to setup the link field, I can't seem to find those two fields in the list.


Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create new custom object
  2. Create new field
  3. Set data type: link
  4. Set link object: lead
  5. Look under link field for first/Last name.


Are there restrictions to link fields or am I missing something to allow links on first and last name? Unfortunately linking on email address isn't an option here.
