I think there's probably as many ways to name users as there are servers
the first thing that came to mind as a suggestion for you was to try a
system like these:
* First half of first name, second half of second name (or variations on
things like that)
eg,Kaetz (in my case, less then pretty).
* First x numbers of first name, first x numbers of second name (or
eg, using 4 letters karlgoet
food for thought.
