This question already has an answer here:

While users may (and do) exercise their right to change their profile display name would it be useful to have a "Username History" or "Formerly known as" section in the profile. This could show the most recent (or two or three) most recent usernames of the user.

I know it's a fairly trivial idea but if a user changes the name and avatar I get confused who some people are - I am not a clever man.
