OK, then go ahead and create them. You have my permission.

If you meant to ask a question, then ask it.

No, that's changing the actual name.

Are we talking about mail aliases or logins?

Can't be done... a login name is a login name.

If my account is created as "dhoffman", then that's how I log in. That might not be my DISPLAY NAME, but that's the name of my account. If I want to login as "david" instead of "dhoffman", then I have to change the account name. There are no aliases for logins.
