Is it important to use your real name as a freelancer?

I have often heard from many freelancers that it is important to use your real name for work on freelancing.
They say you need to create your name and work on his reputation. More questions may arise in the calculation for the work performed, in case if the client found you by alias, and payment now have to produce a very different name.

So, how important is it to promote their real name?
Or you can safely work under a pseudonym?
As a really this are the customers? There are examples?
Are there examples of successful freelancers working under aliases?
What are the arguments for and against?

PS I mean not the use of the nickname, and for example, more relevant/eye-catching/memorable name, and the name to leave now.

You can promote your unique nickname or your real name, or both. It is your personal choice and no one will be able to choose one or the other of these two/three items.

Or you can safely work under a pseudonym?


You can run without my real name. Actually it is not some supernatural phenomenon because each person might have a hundred reasons to work under a pseudonym. It is only a name and everything. Name, though the Master of the mirror or Ghost Hunter is not how you gain skills. Of course a well-chosen pseudonym would be a good item, but however well it depends on your imagination and taste. IMHO.

As a really this are the customers? There are examples?


Adequately treat. If the alias is adequate and does not cause fear/laughter/rejection/other senses and/or emotions. Everything must be carefully, seriously and professionally.

PS I mean not the use of the nickname, and for example, more relevant/eye-catching/memorable name, and the name to leave now.


Then what is it? If the name remains real, and the name becomes the alias, then all General rules. Qualitatively do their job and all will be well, and all the rest is nonsense.

When you pay on PayPal, there is a lot of questions BEFORE taking the project in case of discrepancy of data profiles on the freelance site and data of questionnaire PayPal.
And why do you have a path alias is associated with the trick? Just do not want each fence to leave your name for what? So it is important for the customer to know the real name if the work was done efficiently? - tyrel commented on April 19th 20 at 12:42
@tyrel, when it comes to cooperation, it is important. Unless you're some super-duper anonymous hacker, but then you and the questions not asked. - annetta63 commented on April 19th 20 at 12:45
@tyrel, tell me why you hide the name? - Clementine.Farre commented on April 19th 20 at 12:48
@Clementine.Farre, we are not talking about some inappropriate nickname. It is about the use of for example, more relevant/eye-catching/memorable name, and the name to leave now. - tyrel commented on April 19th 20 at 12:51
@tyrel, I'm talking about the nickname didn't say anything.
You did not call! - Clementine.Farre commented on April 19th 20 at 12:54
@Clementine.Farre, and my called, twice, and read carefully. - tyrel commented on April 19th 20 at 12:57
@tyrel, Why do you want to hide the name? - Clementine.Farre commented on April 19th 20 at 13:00
@Clementine.Farre, there is no intention to hide the name of the customer, in collaboration enough to explain that working under a pseudonym, what's the problem? Few people works with aliases? There is no problem even to show your passport to the customer. Are you looking for a trick where it is not. Asked further to say on the topic, if there is a real experience and examples, not to speculate about others ' intentions. - tyrel commented on April 19th 20 at 13:03
@tyrel,
when cooperation is sufficient to explain that working under a pseudonym
and
no intention to hide the name of the customer
not the same thing.
The problem is already evident even here.
And where the money will be even worse! - Clementine.Farre commented on April 19th 20 at 13:06
@Clementine.Farre, there is no problem. I want to separate my personal life from work.
Suppose you go out to the customer, the artist known as Sasha Pies for example with an already good reputation, you immediately inform him that, in fact, I'm Sasha Sidorov, just took a beautiful alias. You think the customer will turn around and leave? I doubt it.

Once again I will ask not to Express opinions and hypotheses to build it and I've done describing your issue, and repeatedly thinking about his question, I want to hear real personal experience, experience of friends, examples of well-known freelancers with aliases, I'm sure they exist. - tyrel commented on April 19th 20 at 13:09
@tyrel, I thought, but when you pay on PayPal there are many questions BEFORE taking the project in case of discrepancy of data profiles on the freelance site and data of questionnaire PayPal. - Clementine.Farre commented on April 19th 20 at 13:12

If you are going to do something bad and it is important for you, then use an alias. Each person has reasons not to give his real name.
Nothing bad, just carry on with their activities under a pseudonym.
For some reason, some think that to invest in the reputation of the alias is not equal to invest in their reputation. And even more surprised when some put an equal sign between a pseudonym and anonymity. Something like: "Oh what, is up to something..."
At the same time, an alias is absolutely not a hindrance to engage in public activities. Often the real names of those who uses an alias known to all.

Thanks for the reply. - tyrel commented on April 19th 20 at 12:44

The right to remain anonymous - it is exclusively Your right. In the end a crucial role will be played by Your skills.
