It is helpful to establish a standard way of forming user names, and the names should be easy for users to remember. A simple scheme when selecting a user name is to use the first name initial and first seven letters of the user's last name. For example, Ziggy Ignatz becomes zignatz. If that scheme results in duplicate names, you can use the first initial, middle initial, and the first six characters of the user's last name. For example, Ziggy Top Ignatz becomes ztignatz. If that still results in duplicate names, you can use the first initial, middle initial, first five characters of the user's last name, and the number 1, or 2, or 3, and so on, until you have a unique name.
