ListView Android - displays two Items from the List < String>

I I'm trying to do ListView. This is my code:

List<String> list = new ArrayList<>();
String[] add1 = {"FirstName1 ","LastName1", "12-12.1993"};
String[] add2 = {"FirstName2 ","LastName2", "20-12.1993"};
// Then adds these tables to the list;
list.add(add1[0] + add1[1] + add1[2]);
list.add(add2[0] + add2[1] + add2[2]);
//I create a ListView adapter
ArrayAdapter<String> adapter = new ArrayAdapter<String>(this,android.R.layout.simple_list_item_2, list);

Now, My ListView looks like this: "FirstName1 LastName1 12-12.1993" etc.
I would to looks like this: "FirstName1 LastName1".

I don't deleted date, because I send date to SecondActivity.

Make new Class that hold a Person


public class Person {
    private String name;
    private String surname;
    private String date;

    public Person(String name, String surname, String date) {
        this.name = name;
        this.surname = surname;
        this.date = date;

    public String toString() {
        return "Person{" +
                "name='" + name + '\'' +
                ", surname='" + surname + '\'' +
                ", date='" + date + '\'' +

Then on your main activity create an ArrayList. this Array holds a list of Persons

   ArrayList<Person> list =new ArrayList<>();
   list.add(new Person("FirstName1 ","LastName1", "12-12.1993"));
   list.add(new Person("FirstName2 ","LastName2", "20-12.1993"));

if you want to see the items in ArrayList you can type this:



Log.e("ArrayList","ArrayList Position 0 :"+list.get(0).toString();

Finally you must Create a Custom Adapter that you pass him the Custom Array.

CustomAdapter adapter= new CustomAdapter(this,list);
