Out of curiosity, is this something that's on the to-do list? Was just looking at my select user page and added the following to CSS and user-switch-page for fun;

.user-select-list-item>a:hover .alias{
 color:#fff
}

.user-select-list-item .alias {
 width:120px;
 padding:5px;
 color:#999;
 text-align:center;
 overflow:hidden;
 text-overflow:ellipsis;
 white-space:nowrap;
 background:rgba(0,0,0,.5)
}

<div class="username" style="display: none;">Pahiro</div>
<div class="alias">Full Name</div>

Assume a database field will be required and some JS to retrieve the data. I've dug around a bit and saw there were a couple of threads created for this request since 2014 but none of them have any real response. It's such a small thing but would seriously improve the home server experience.
