In admin settings add a text field so that user can define a default value for the avatar's "name" (if no value entered fallback to current behavior). In my use case, avatars are added through bulk update only: as I use CC licensed avatars, I must add proper credit "linking" back to original image. I would then use the default to reference a local "credits page" listing all authors. Thank you.
