If you have Name-Marr tags for them, yes. When you enter a tag, look
on the top right side of the tag entry screen. There will be two boxes
that say "Primary Name", one for each principal. If you click on the
arrow button attached to the box, you will see a list of all of the
available names for that principal. Select one of the names and, TMG
will use that name for that tag.

You have the same options when you add witnesses to a tag.
