Please change your name to be compliant with JavaRanch's naming policy.
Your displayed name should be 2 separate names with more than 1 letter each. We really would prefer that you use your REAL name.
You can change your name: here.

There is nothing about "more than 1 letter".
How abouth maha ana, or other respected users using names without capitalization? I even read her explanation that it is petty names... Sorry my lack of liberalism, but as for me names are, by definition, capitalized.
How about Marilyn de Queiroz exceeding 2 names?
A year ago, being preoccupied in receiving never won book, I asked whether my name is complied. Not searching that answer just now, from my memory I remember, Jim Yingst, answered that one-letter name complies.
Have I lost any books because of segregation and/or because bartenders do not know Name Policy?

No, you have not lost any books because of that :roll: .
My comment is a generalization I suppose. What has been agreed in the Moderators Forum is that we would allow one letter first names, but not one letter last names.
However, since YOUR one letter first name has caused more problems than anyone elses name on the forum . . . oh, never mind . . . .
Your name is technically compliant.
No one EVER ANYWHERE said anything about capitalization, so your definition is irrelevant.
There is no rule about not having MORE than 2 names, just that you must have AT LEAST 2. There are LOTS of cases where that is used.
Can we quit talking about this now??
