Is it possible to specify aliases for the username, so that a user can
choose any 1 of several names to log in with?

Like let's say we have my name as a username, "Wesley". But what I if I want
to be very lazy and only sign in with "wes"? And I would like to have the
option of using either. And if I change any attribute of one alias, it's all
stored in the same place, so it should take effect for the other aliases.
So, if I log in as "wesley" and change my password, I should be able to log
out and log back in as "wes" with the new password I set for "wesley".

Can this be done?
