 I would stay away from the underscore in a DNS world . We use first
letter of first name and 5 characters of last name + a sequential number
for duplicates. Needed to keep up some legacy apps that won't take more
than 8 characters. Don't have all that many dupes with 4500 users,

We use firstname_lastname for usernames and firstname_lastname@ for
email addresses.  We have not yet had any naming conflicts, but would
probably solve that issue by using the middle name and/or a number. 
This is slightly longer than many other conventions, but it's incredibly
convenient for us here in IT.
