I have been having the same issue as you. I just started playing Defiance a week ago, so I thought it was normal not to see names. The only time I really see names above other character's heads is when I am in a group with them.

I do not have a bad connection, so I thought this sort of thing was normal. When I do want to see who is around me I typically just check the "nearby" function.

When in a large group of people (Arkfalls) you won't hardly see them. Check your settings at the character select screen when starting the game up.

It's a known bug they say they're working on. If memory serves it happened after patch 1.012, b/c you could see names for the first several days. Now you can only see some. If you really want to identify someone, pull out a bmg and you'll be able to see all names

Personally, I have never been able to see names or any other info above someone's head unless I am grouped with them OR if they have recently talked on a microphone and I heard them in area chat.
