Comment (by ninjaWR):

 For the first approach: what other name fields could be asked for? First,
 Last, and  Nickname are already there, and there is also the user name,
 which is specified when registering (the others need to be filled in after
 logging in).

 For the third approach: current choices (assuming each of the name fields
 is filled in) are 'Username', 'Nickname', 'First', 'First Last', and 'Last
 First'. Any suggestions for other methods that can be talked about?

 For the second appraoch: 'First Name', 'Last Name', 'Nickname', and
 'Display name publicly as' all use _e(), so they are translatable if
 someone takes the time to to so. See
 [http://codex.wordpress.org/Translating_WordPress Translating WordPress]
 and  [http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_in_Your_Language  WordPress in
 Your Language] for more details on that.

 The fourth approach might be better in its own ticket, since it doesn't
 deal strictly with i18n.
