How does one associate actual usernames with wiki entries made by contributors authenticated with, e.g., their google account?

Our wiki has users who authenticate using, for example, their google account. Their entries are then tagged with something that looks like this:

Added by

This is an obvious barrier to communication since you cannot tell who actually wrote the entry. Going to the link does not produce anything useful.

Can the wiki creator do something to associate human-readable usernames with a given google login ID? Or can each user assign him/herself a username (or maybe a better term is nickname, as it replaces the official (and useless) obfuscated username)?

Thanks for your help.

Are you using Crowd for the google authentication?

If so creating an alias for the confluence app is the way to go:'s+Aliases

Otherwise I am not sure how you even have confluence users authenticating with openIDs.
