I have my own system, I only use my real name with a very select few people (no company other than my bank and not even Google knows it) and I can spot fake emails instantly because they are addressed to my internet name and not to me. I have other ways of knowing as well but...
If you give a different name for every application you use you will know exactly where the fake emails are placing you on radar (and which company is selling your name/info to these phishers/spammers).
Google aims to force me to use my real name everywhere but... no. I just don't see how blocking is going to match up with my current system. I hope they DO make it impossible to fake the sender email however, that would be a start, since I regularly get email offers that appear to be sent from me.
