    In some others WordPress blogs, I see the author's names before or after each post. Why are my different authors' names not showing up in posts?

    It may be because of your theme

    The default theme has the_author commented out in index.php.

    Is it possible to insert a little hack somewhere, so the author name shows up?

    Take a look at the example that's in wp-content/themes/default/index.php.

    <small><?php the_time('F jS, Y') ?> <!-- by <?php the_author() ?> --></small>

    the_author() is commented out so take off the
    <!-- and --> so it is "uncommented" (turned on).
