Make users with same name distinguishable when adding watchers
As current redmine, when I search to add watchers, some members have the same name.
I need to know what email of theirs.
P/S : Users don't want to input email to add watchers because they don't remember it.

- Priority changed from High to Normal
We do not expose the email addresses of the users on purpose, but maybe support for a middle initial or other distinctive field would be a good idea?
While it's already possible to add custom fields to the user profile, these are not taken into account in the selection of watchers.

name middle initial is not good enough because our users don't come from US so different naming rule.
I haven't heard about purpose not to show email in watchers yet. where can I locate it?
Also, we are not using any user custom fields.
BTW, we're glad to hear any solution to make our users comfortable.
