We are converting from lastname-first initial to first letter of first
name and last name.  With duplicates we use the first and second letters
of the first name.  I am not aware of any duplicate names yet but we
would probably use the letters of the middle name.

What naming conventions do you use for similar or identical login

Our naming convention is last name and first initial.  What do you do
when you have John Smith and Jill Smith - smithjo and smithji, or
smithj1 and smithj2, or something else?

What do you do with two identical names, for example two James Jones?

Is there one industry standard or several?
