I prefer to call people by their real names rather than a username.

Is there a way to establish a member's real name before welcoming them or responding to them ?

You can have a look at their profile but if they do not choose to state their name there is nothing you can do

Hello Theuns. Yes,I feel that using people's Christian names is preferable to using their usernames. As Alan and Kathy have answered this for you, I can't really add further.
My name is Alastair.

Hi again Theuns

Go to the persons profile page and scroll down to the very bottom of the page and where Kyle or Carson has welcomed them they will normally have used the first name that the person used when they signed up.

Thanks Alan, I already told Kathy that I follow that strategy. I just thought there was some way we could also gain access to their real names, but maybe some people prefer to keep it private, right ?
Thanks for your response man.

Yes you can only find out the name they used to sign up with but it's not guaranteed to be their real name

I usually scroll through the messages on their profile page where Kyle posts his welcome, the real name is usually there.
