I don't think there's a lookup for that (might be worth logging a
feature request) but generally I rely on using the /whois command to
ask the IRC network for details on a particular nick and look at the
realname returned with it. I would encourage people to make sure
their IRC clients are configured to set that metadata to something
useful unless they really prefer to interact entirely pseudonymously
there (that's of course a legitimate preference too).
