Local or Domain?
Local you can use ADSI and Powershell to pase a csv in into user names.
Domain you can use Powershell as well but will use a csv  to mport the csv entries into AD as user objects.
Let us know and we can possible write something up for you.
Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

You need to prepare a user's templates in batch files. Then you can use file text structure to import them into Active Directory. If you need assistance just let me know, I will help you.
I would use powershell with the free AD snappin provided here.
