U4-9808 - Make use of "Login Name" consistent between first install and creating new users

Relates to: U4-9824

When you first install Umbraco asks for an email but not an "login name" yet when you create a new user you have to put in a "login name" and an "email". I think this terminology a little confusing, which is my name to login with? What should I put in the username field?

Suggest we simply change the labels on user and login pages to something like:

"Name" "Email (this is what use to login with)"

Which should make it a lot clearer, always catches me out!

Yup - that's in the cards for 7.7 and the overhaul of the users section!
