Real names not shown


Despite having enable names and enable names on post options activated, only some of my users’ names are shown beneath their user names (everyone has a real name set).
What could be the reason for this, and how to fix it? They are very important for our board.

If the real name is identical to the username save for spacing and capitalization, it will not be shown to avoid redundancy.

E.g. @kevinlytle having a full name of “Kevin Lytle”, or @Jake_Jackson having a full name of “Jake Jackson”


That is great!
That’s one of the reasons I love Discourse: Is very smart.

Thanks for your answer.
