NametagEdit is an easy to configure plugin that allows users to change their nametags and tab names. With NametagEdit, users can add an additional 16 characters before and after their name. Additionally, the reflection in use will keep the plugin compatible with several minecraft versions (currently compatible with 1.5.2 - 1.7.10).

Servers Running NametagEdit
Will this work with maps that use scoreboard features?
Trying this with adventure maps that already have pre set scoreboard teams is not reccomended. Although it will likely work, the scoreboard teams must have a letter or symbol in its name, and the players playing on the map cannot have a nametag assigned from this plugin.
I removed the plugin, but I still see prefixes and suffixes on my nametag!
Old versions of this plugin saves data along with the scoreboard.dat object in the world folder. In order to reset all the prefixes and suffixes, you must delete this file. Be carefull when doing this, as it will remove all scoreboard data in your server. Versions 1.6+ no longer do this.
How long can my name be with this plugin?
You can add a maximum of 16 characters for each a prefix and suffix, allowing a total of 32 characters that can be added to your nametag.
Does my nametag really change?
This plugin manipulates scoreboard teams to add prefixes and suffixes, the player's actual name, skin, and nametag stays enact.
Why not use TagAPI?
TagAPI makes edits to the actual nametag, thus allowing changes to your actual username above your head, but is limited to 16 characters for the entire nametag. TagAPI cannot be used to properly add a group prefix to player's nametags, since minecraft usernames can be up to 16 characters long.
