I’d better clear this up before it gets out of hand. My full name is Violeta Ivanova Todorova, but everyone calls me Villy. This can create confusion and fragmentation in terms of professional vs. private social networks.
Passport/Drivers License/Bank Account: uses Violeta
My website: uses Villy
My blog: uses Villy
My Resume/CV: uses Violeta
My professional e-mail: uses Violeta
My personal e-mail: uses Villy
My Linkedin: uses Violeta
My Facebook: uses both Villy and Violeta
SO WHAT SHOULD YOU CALL ME? Either Villy or Violeta is fine. Just please don’t call me Lilly, Billy, Willy, or Victoria. Or whatever else is usually written on my Starbucks cup.
