Is there a way to hide the name on the SMS preview?

I have my phone so the SMS preview is blocked, but is there a way to also block the person's name from coming up? Maybe, so that it just says "text message" with no name or preview. Is there a way to do this without jailbreaking my phone?

I myself would also like to know how to do this. If there's a JB option as well, I wouldn't mind :)

settings>messages>show preview>off

The name of the person texting will still come up, but then it will say Text Message.
I don't know how to get rid of the name.
