INVALID_FIELD_FOR_INSERT_UPDATE, Account: bad field names on insert/update call: Name: [Name]

When your working with Person Accounts in Salesforce we should be very careful because these Accounts can also acts as a Contact .It means these person accounts will share many fields with contacts.

The Person Account name will contains First Name and Last Name .When your trying to load any Person Accounts with data loader or with any other apex code we should follow some naming conventions .If your trying to map these field values to Name field of Account we will end up with the same error.

So when your loading the Person Accounts data your .csv file must contain a columns FirstName and LastName but not only the Name.
