Hello we have two users with the same first name and last name.
I've made simple patch to add new user format like "Lastname Firstname (Login)"

This problem happened to me and I also ended up recreating your solution independently.

The better situation would be a check to only add the login if a duplicate was found. The problem with that approach is that you would have to traverse all the users to know if you had a duplicate.

Else, you could add a flag to the database when the user format had duplicates.

This is kind of an annoying bug, because lay users get a bit confused
