Student alias

I have an online class right now where most of the students don't go by their given name (Matthew is Matt, Jeffrey is Jeff, and, oddly, Everett is "Geno", etc.).  Could their given name be in the database under INFO for each student, but their DISPLAY name be what they prefer to be called?  It would be especially helpful for threaded discussion where the students keep referring to one another by their formal names.  The personal touch would be nice.
