I searched some of these on iNaturalist and nothing came up. Are these usernames from iNaturalist or somewhere else? On iNaturalist you can go to the user’s profile page and their full name will often be there.

I think a mix of iNat and elsewhere?
There is one I see at least who is a regular here.
