Hello everybody! I find it interesting, when people ask you - do you like your name? and would you like to change it? but they themselves are using a false identity. :-) How many people on MyLot are using a name, which is even remotely close to their real name. Thanks in advance. Umart

Hello yogeshhusa. You could easliy have called yourself yogi and many westerners would liked it. Interesting that you chose not to. I know people here in Germany who have set their blogs up under false "indian" names. I wonder if this is a trend. All the best. UMart

I use my nickname..its a shortened version of my name. I dont see the need to be using a false identity but I also dont see the need to be posting my full name all over the place. My friends know me as Saundy and thats what i'm used to.

Hi saundal, thanks for the answer. My name is the combination of my name and a friend of mine. We used to sell books on Amazon under this name and I like it. Have a good week, Umart

Hi Rocco, thanks for your comment. This could be an interesting discussion as I have the feeling that many people hide behind a mask :-) May the great unvieling begin. Have a good weekend Umart

Hello Umart, what do you reckon wolfie is my real name? No, but it's a name I gave myself as a nickname which everyone knows me by, I do a lot of business and promotion over the internet and wolfie is a name that everyone remembers and everyone knows me as Wolfie now, so to change it would cause a lot of confusion. My real name is Brian, I know it's kind of boring. Brian34 or Wolfie34, Wolfie is much better I am sure you agree. Wolfie is a good description of me because I am like the wolf in many ways so its my trademark if you like.

Hi wolfie34, that's a bit similar to the story behind my username. UMart is a combination of my nickname and my friend's name. Similar to your story, we used to sell books together on Amazon using a similar name. The number comes from her birthdate. Have a good week. Umart

Thank you for best response, appreciated. The number 34 was my age at the time, but now I am 37! So the 34 stuck!
