    I would like to have my members to be displayed on a First Name and Last Name basis. For some of us who is using buddypress and Boss theme on a professional level, it's very important to keep that image. Having random names/usernames/nicknames makes it look less professional or not at all.

    Thanks for your suggestion 🙂 We will think to implement it.
