i know you said you tried something with the isname function, but all you
really need to do is change calls to isname to look like:

(isname(arg, GET_NAME(ch)) || isname(arg, GET_TITLE(ch))

if i were going to do this i would just make a macro:
#define CH_NAME(arg, ch)        (isname(arg, GET_NAME(ch)) || \
                                 isname(arg, GET_TITLE(ch))

isname takes one argument for the word we are trying to find, and the
second argument is a wordlist separated by spaces (just like a title would
be)..maybe you should read the code a little more closely..
