Question How can I display a user's first and last name using just the XWiki.username. ie instead of having to John Smith>XWiki.jsmith can I just specify XWiki.jsmith and automatically display the first and last name. user's first name and last name
Answer

You can use
$xwiki.getUserName("XWiki.TheUser")
, which automatically formats the username and also links to his/her profile.

If you don't want to link to the user profile, you can use
$xwiki.getUserName("XWiki.TheUser", false)
.
