Sorry for this noob question.  I looked in the FAQ and searched the forum
but didn't see anything.

I have four David's on my IM.

I would like to change the nickname of these buddies to include their last
name so I can tell them apart.

How can I do this?

If I right click on the buddy, and click "Alias..."  absolutely nothing

I am running Pidgin 2.4.2 on Windows XP.
