You can put whatever name you wish people to call you, Winstoner.
Is putting your full name risky? Opinions differ. Some don't mind potentially identifying themselves to every single internet user, good and bad, and others think that to be identifiiable as a specific real person is risky - what with identity theft, information on movements, the potential to actually find where you live, etc, etc.
I never thought that I would (look away now, Major
:-D ) recommend a Microsloth Dark Side website, but this page and the links
have some useful information about personal details.
(OK, you can start reading again from here, Major.
If you want to declare your full real name then feel free - but I will only list Christian/given/forenames or whatever you wish to call it. And I myself am called by my second name, and that's what appears in the list.
It's really up to you.

No matter what you say, or how you say it, someone somewhere will deliberately go out of their way to be offended.
