Bug Description

Version: focal,now 3.36.0-1ubuntu1 amd64

~/.config/goa-1.0/accounts.conf has a field called PresentationIdentity. When setting up a Google Account for example, that field gets set to the email address. This field is used in places like Nautilus to show which accounts something is connected to. If the addresses are similar (and long) this can be a bit confusing.

Example:

<email address hidden>
<email address hidden>

If there were an option in the GUI to set the name (to Gmail and School in this example), there would be less confusion in places like Nautilus.

Visual Example:

__________|
johnjacobj|
johnjacobj|
__________|

Becomes:

__________|
    Gmail |
   School |
__________|
