I doubt this plays a significant role. Xyne had 0 "no" votes, for 
example. [1] If you're active across the internet, something like 
keybase is nice though. [2]

Also in any mediawiki installation, the full name is entirely optional: 
see "Real name is optional. If provided, it may be used to give you 
attribution for your work."
