IIRC, this shows up for me, but only if the person subscribed via Email 
which of course sends the name along with the Email address in the From 
line.  Whether or not it will also allow you to add real names if you add 
users as "Firstname Lastname <address at example.com" in the various add 
member screens, I don't know.

All this is to say that the names will show up in the Member Name column 
if Mailman knows it.

What version of Mailman are you using?

Or are you asking about something like list_members?  I'm assuming you 
mean the member list in the web interface.
