[Catalyst] Custom fields in a model

I have a database table -- let's call it 'Contacts' that I'm accessing
through a DBIx::Class model. This table has two fields called
'first_name' and 'last_name'.
Could I get some suggestion on the best way to add code to the model (or
the schema) to allow me to add a custom field to the resultset without
having an actual column in the database table? I want to be able to
access a field in the resultset called something like 'common_name'.
This field would contain a concatenation of the first and last name
fields for people and only the data from the last name for other
entities like businesses.
