I'm encountering a small but rather frustrating stupid problem that's driving me mad.
At some point Google insisted on me specifying a first and last name. I entered "Stromboli" for both. Since then, my nickname appears as "Stromboli Stromboli" (i.e. twice).
I have changed my nickname, I have removed the last name, but no matter what I try... It seems to looks OK in all profile settings but when I actually place a comment anywhere on Youtube, it still appears as "Stromboli Stromboli".
Here's some screenshots of what I tried, with the current settings.
• Youtube top right profile popup:
• Youtube settings:
• When I click Edit on Google:
• The dropdown options for "Display my name as" are:
• Back in in my Google profile:
• Clicking the top right popup:
• When I click on "My Account", I get to Personal info in Google:
• Top right google account popup:
• And even my Gmail settings:
• However... When I place a comment on a video, or when I enter the chat in a Live stream:
Would anyone know how I can get Youtube to just show my name as "Stromboli" (once, not twice) when I place comments on videos or streams??
Note: instead of using a first and/or last name, I also see a lot of Youtube comments using only a custom nickname. So I know it's possible. That'd be also great for me, is there a way I can specify to just use a nickname on Youtube?
