Is it possible to change ArcGIS Online and/or Portal items so that the first and last name associated with an account displays as the owner instead of the user name? It's purely a personal preference, but I think a first and last name looks nicer and makes more sense to the lay person than a username.

I like this! If it's not already possible, it sounds like a good thing to post to the "Ideas" section of Geonet.

Thanks, Kelly! I've up-voted the idea.

Maybe both?  The username is unique... so maybe more authoritative with regard to owner.

I think it would be ideal to have the choice to do one or both. Kelly, thanks for the link to the Ideas page!

Hi all, this would be great and I'm not quite sure if it's possible yet in Enterprise 10.8.x. We're using a web app to gather feedback from staff within our organization in Portal. For now we're having them type in their name and department manually with each comment submission, but it would be great if we could show the First and Last name associated to their user rather than the username itself (email address) when we show the recorded comments/"edited by" user.
