Names with non-Latin characters are not imported correctly:
They could be transliterated using:
StringTransform("Any-Latin; Latin-ASCII; Any-Title"),

I don't think it's okay to transliterate people's names…
Sorry, something went wrong.
Comment by Nicole Jacque (JIRA)
Let me see if we can resolve this for our final import.
Actually, no, I don't think we should transliterate either....
There are only 20 users affected, so maybe it's not worth resolving. But you could take the local-part of their email address as a username. This is already the case for https://swift.trydiscourse.com/u/no-reply and a few others.
Maybe we can just offer those people the option of what to do with their username.
Will everyone be able to change their own username?
They will when they sign up. After that they can only change them with admin intervention, I think.
@@belkadan, the macOS "Users & Groups" prefPane transliterates people's names, when suggesting an account name for their home folder.
@najacque (JIRA User), can this bug report be closed now?
Ben, fair point. As long as it's a suggestion or default rather than a forced thing, it would be a reasonable thing to do. It sounds like it's not going to matter too much this time around, though!
