I'm following these Desktop steps to add the nickname for my G+ profile, however I'm not able to use my nickname to display on comments.

For example going to some Chrome web store and posting the comment using my Google account, I would like to see my nickname instead of full name.

Is it possible?

Presumably by using the "Display name as..." option where you create the nickname.

Unfortunately, Google doesn't give you that option. If you give yourself a nickname, you can display your name as

  • John Doe
  • John "Johnny Five" Doe
  • John Doe (Johnny Five)

There is no option to just display "Johnny Five".

The other option is to change your actual display name, but that may be impractical for a couple of reasons.
