Owner Info is a possible workaround.

Settings > Security > Owner Info

It shows an arbitrary string on the lock screen.

Here's an example:


There are numerous notebook style applications, and I, obviously, cannot provide an exhaustive list. Why not shop around (many are free) and ensure they have a lock-screen widget option?!
