I find it fascinating that WA doesn't get why people might not want to use their first name and last name given we were able to select a username to use for this forum - rather than be required to use first and last name - and many chose the option to use something other than their names. ;-)
My community focuses on a personal issue rather than professional issue. The ability to use a nickname would be a big benefit.
In professional groups, it's not uncommon for someone to prefer to use a nickname (since that's what their known by) instead of formal name as well.
Other communities have this capability.
Hope you reconsider bringing this to the table!
