Using Your Real Name Online

I have never used my real name online except my Facebook. Even then my Facebook doesn't have any photos of me.

When I was young I was told never to give out personal information online. I'm now old enough to do so but now with added threats such as doxing falling into the wrong hands I prefer to keep up old traditions. Even my age is fake - albeit that's an open secret. The only thing I admit is that I'm from Scotland and at times I live in Dundee. I probably won't ever give out my home town so Lanarkshire is the closest thing you'll get.

I always had this feeling that people who didn't use their actual names, or put a twist/pun on their usernames with real names, had an insecurity or felt embarrassed by their real name.

I sometimes use my real name online. Most of my Skype friends know me by my real name and I use my real name in this one community I've been in since middle school.

My real name is Ryan, for those who care. I made it into a username with "Ryanion" that I sometimes use.

I've never felt the need to hide who I really am online, let alone my real name as it's in my profile anyway, along with a lot of other detailed information about me, including my real age, D.O.B, location, relationship status and photos of the real-life me

I prefer not to.

Not a guy who likes the idea of showing your own cards to everyone.

I only give my real name if I talk to the person for quite a while

I really don't like giving out my real name online but I will give it out sometimes though.

When I use my real name, I spell my first name differently (like on IG or my Xbox profile). The only thing that has my real, full name is my FB, but it's set so that you can't search me. Reason being is that I have both an uncommon first and last name, but paired together... so rare that I'm the only one of that name in the world, according to FB and Google searches o.O a little terrifying in actuality, so I just stick to usernames and occasionally spelling my first name differently. Nowadays though, I usually just go by Missee on just about everything online.
