The first and last name you use to create your account doesn’t have any effect on the insights generated for Your Pattern. We suggest that you use the name you’re most comfortable with, but remember, it is against The Pattern Terms of Service to impersonate anyone else, so use discretion if you choose to enter an alias.
Your username is a unique handle that allows you to further customize your presence on The Pattern. You can change your username at any time by tapping ‘Edit Profile’ from Your Pattern. Usernames with profane or offensive words may be subject to deletion or revision at the discretion of The Pattern without advance notice to the user.
