The MakePageName function automatically converts a string into
its equivalent pagename.  So, you might want:

    $username = PageVar(MakePageName($pagename, $user), '$Name');

The MakePageName() function takes a string like "alice roberts"
and turns it into  "Group.AliceRoberts".  The PageVar() function
then extracts just the name portion of that (i.e., "AliceRoberts").
