I was thinking of another case, whose link on enwiki is [[Wikipedia:Requests
for Arbitration/Real-name]].  That case had two users, both under their real
names.  One of them was the user whose real name was used for the case.

Like John says, cases usually try to avoid using a real name where
possible.  But if the user's username is their real name then it will be
named in the case for that reason.
