Ask Subscribers for Name

When a member joins using the Lyris web interface, Lyris can ask the person for their name. This option allows you to require a name, to make the name optional, or to not ask for their name at all.

Note that if joining by email is allowed, that this setting has no impact, because there is no way to require a name if people can join by email. If you want to always have member names, you should also set your mailing list to not allow joining by email, so that people must use the web interface to join. See Allow Joining by Email.
