Details

I have a review request from Paolo. Like me, Paolo includes his ircnick-related ":foo" bit in his name, ie Paolo's bugzilla name is ":Paolo Amadini", mine is ":Gijs" .

In the request dropdown, this shows up for me as "Amadini asked for your review".

This is confusing. We shouldn't be stripping these bits of our names.
That is a common use case

Honestly I really don't like BMO's local practice that allows people to include IRC nick, status message etc. in the real name field. It makes difficult to design UI elements like this.
This will be fixed in Bug 1480042.
