Can I encrypt an email sender's name?

I need to encrypt a Lotus Notes email field while sending. I want to encrypt the Lotus Notes user's name and then send the email. How do I do this?

You cannot encrypt the names of email senders or recipients. If you did, Lotus Notes -- or any email system -- would not be able to deliver the email.
