Re: Automatic User Name Creation
A department at the BBC used a similar user name generation system, based on family name and initial letters from given names.
A large US corporation that shall remain nameless took over a UK company and introduced their single sign on system. SSO ids were the first 4 letters of the surname and first 2 letters of the first name. It took them a while to understand why Chris Fell's id caused amusement(*).
(*) The more innocent reader may need to refer to the Urban Dictionary(**).
(**) But then again, maybe they shouldn't.
