What is
A1Name and A2Name? are these selections?
If so you just need to create the field, then click on the > and select to create new entries so the users can select them

The goldmine fields for A1Name is CONTACT1>Contact whilst A2Name is CONTACT1>TITLE

This data is stored in the top right pane of goldmine

So are you wanting to populate the f2 lookup list with all the contacts and titles in the Database?

You cannot do this in goldmine I am afraid, the LOOKUP table is complicated so you also wont be able to do this via the backend SQL directly,
GoldBox has an import lookup feature but thats about all you can use.
You can populate a lookup with the contents of another lookup but not the contents, GoldMine Premium (8) however does allow this.
Maybe in a 7.6 you will be able to do this but I have not been able to install 7.6 and test it yet.

Update: 7.6 and Premium cannot do this, but they both allow you to "list existing data" for any field, so it can show you a list of distinct data thats already populated in that field,
