Adding Bulk Users - Usernames creation?

Hi Guys,

I am trying things on Moodle and I want to know if I add bulk users, how do i create usernames for them?

Moodle's user upload does not create usernames - just passwords. I couldn't find any plugins to do this (doesn't mean there isn't one). 

All the fields are described in the documentation - Upload_users
