Is there any way to require people to use real names at registration?

#1
I've been searching all through the forums and add-ons and can't find the answer to this question. We'd like to require our members use their real names when they register. Is there any way to do this? Any add-on?

You could edit the phrases to say name, and the explanation phrase to stipulate real name, but how would a piece of software confirm that the entered text is someone's real name?

Liam - thank you for your reply.
We know most of our members from another group. The new ones we'd just have to hope for the best :) It's in their own self-interest for the kind of group we have anyway, whether they realize it or not when they register.

Is it easy to edit the phrases or do I need a developer to do it?

Your original query and follow ups were worded in such a way to suggest you were referring to an/your existing XF installation, which would typically require it to be posted in the customer support forum.

Hence why I was clarifying the situation.

Aha - I understand now. Thank you.
