in reply to generate list from users first name and name?

Something like this?
#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; while (<DATA>) { chomp; my @names = map lc, split; s/\.// for @names; print join "\t", $_, lc substr($names[0], 0, 1) . $names[-1], lc join '.', @names; print "\n" } __DATA__ Max Maier Jerome Mustermann John Lee Duke Peter F. Smith
Your treatment of the middle names might be different. Also, if there are non-ASCII characters in your users' names, more care is needed. Moreover, you should probably hash the usernames and e-mails and check for duplicates.
