"Commonly known as" names - is there a way of displaying them?

Hi - the title says it all - in my tree I have a few people who aren't really known by their birth names...

examples :
Ada Ellen Seward went by the name Ann.
Arthur John Smith went by the name John.

When printing the family tree "Ada Ellen Seward" means nothing to people who knew "Auntie Ann" for example - I want to send a print to someone without having to explain who everyone is!

Can ancestry display a preferred/known as name for printing/display without damaging the hints (online / other trees etc) that are found by the real names?
