Yes can see the name, as I mentioned in a previous post, username, real name and email address are shared with us on Paypal. It is not forwarded from the Paypal platform to anywhere else though if that is what you were asking.
In this case 'real name' refers to either the name on your Paypal account if you have logged in to Paypal or the name of the cardholder you have given if you do not log in to Paypal (some people may use a partner's card for example).

My username, real name and email address then appear on the transaction on the Boards.ie Paypal account.
