Default Just wondering... can linux user names...?

Can Linux user login names have digits in them? like /home/jason87 or something like that? I may need to have that flexibility for a project I may do and I was curious if that's possible, or if names need to be only alphabetic. Thank you.

They can include letters, numbers, and I think certain symbols, though I'm not sure about that.

It could contain numbers but should begin with letter
