    [Weird, non gaming question] Should I shorten my name?

    I am considering making a music channel on YouTube where I will upload piano covers of popular songs. I'm just going to use my real name as the channel name. However, the only problem is that my name, "Gianluca Horrocks" is too long and most people can't even pronounce it.

    So, I thought of going with my secondary school nickname that all my friends called me by which is, "Johnny".

    However, is it just me or does the name "Johnny Horrocks" sound funny and silly when you say it?
    Or is there any thing else that I could shorten my first name to that would make it easier to remember?

    - Thanks

    Yeah, I don't see why not.

    If you put that in perspective, Johny Horrocks isn't even that wierd. In fact, you could probably shorten it even more to just "Horrocks" or "Johny".

    if you don't like those of course you can just stick with the obvious "MagicalPenis"

    You can also create a stage name.
    Like your first, or last name can be whatever you want.

    I think it's too long, to be honest. Also, as Hugo said : "You can also create a stage name".
    Good Luck.
