Changing the Display name in Active Directory

By using ADSIEdit you can change the display specifiers used to construct the users display name. The only usable ones I have found for the ADUC dialogue box are:
<%givenName> First name
<%sn> Surname
<%initials> Initials

givenName, sn and initials are all attribute names taken from the schema. It may be possible to use other attributes if you create users other than with ADUC. Anyone know?
