Hi...
My full name is Lavanya Pinnamareddy. That is too long to use everywhere. So i generally use lavanyapmr. But that contains My name. I guess this username is according to the Naming policy of JavaRanch. But why am i asked to the display (user) name? Can anyone clarify this...

Thanks in advance

Hi Lavanya,

Even though it is a variation of your real name, it has to have a separate first name and last name (or an initial and a last name).

In other words
lavanyapmr = not compliant
Lavanya Pinnamareddy = compliant
L. Pinnamareddy = compliant

It is acceptable to shorten your first or last name, though, as long as it looks like a real name.

I don't think there is any problem with the length of your full name as a display name. Actually I quite like it...

If you want to be addressed using a nickname, you could put that into your signature...
