In your list or text file, use addresses of the form
  Real Name <address at example.com>

You can increase DEFAULT_ADMIN_MEMBER_CHUNKSIZE in mm_cfg.py
# How many members to display at a time on the admin cgi to unsubscribe
# or change their options?

You can go to http://www.example.com/mailman/roster/listname but this
list has e-mail address only, not name.

You can also use the e-mail who command which does return names as wall
as addresses.
