Hello, my name is Damian and I am new to Upwork. When I created my account I accidentaly put both of my first names, so my payment method's name and my Upwork's name don't match. Can I do something about it? The name can not be changed by me. I am willing to confirm my identity if I have to.

Hello there, I would like to know if I can use the short version of my name: Shiva, instead of Shivânanda.

While I know that Shivananda is a very common name for many individuals around here, where I live (Brazil) it's a very unique name and during my entire life I was never called Shivânanda in a positive way. I had some family problems because of my full name and what it means, and thus I've drifted away more and more from using it.

Shivananda is actually a "two word" name, Shiva and Ananda (the â is meant to represent, as it sounds in portuguese, as a double a). So theorically my name is Shiva-Ananda.

Is it possible to just use Shiva here on Upwork? While I don't mind my name around banks and credit cards, here it's different as it's on my face all day long, and I'm not entirely comfortable with it.

And I presume accepting "Shiva" for "Shivânanda" is equivalente of accepting "Bob" for Robert.

Hello Joanne, first of all thank you for your reply!

I solicited my name change yesterday and received the message saying it's being processed. Now, I have "two names", on the top bar, the client-freelancer messaging system and community forums It's Shiva, and on my Upwork Profile it's still Shivânanda. Is this normal?
Thank you!
