    Unless you're using your company's global address list, you must have saved the e-mail addresses yourself (either in your personal address book or in Contacts).

    If so, the name is just a short identifier for that e-mail address. You can change the names to include the e-mail address by editing it the name:

    In Contacts, right-click the contact, click Open.
    Change the Full Name line to read:

    Contact Name: E-mail address
    e.g. John Smith: [email protected]
    In the File As line, make sure it says the same as above.
    Click Save and Close.

    Alternatively, use:
    File, Address Book, double-click the addressee, click the Name tab.
    Add the e-mail address to the end of the surname and make sure it appears the same in the Display line.

    If you're using a global address list, I'm not sure how you'd change it, maybe someone else can jump in and help you?
