How to delete all user names?

Hi. I imported from phpbb some time ago.
The script guessed the user names from the email addresses.

A user who didn’t post years before the migration found his real name on the forum and sent me a message to ask us removing his name.
Today, an active user didn’t know his real name was displayed when we clicked on his name (displaying the user card).

I would like to remove all the user names from the database. I guess this can be done with a short rails script?
