Name variants

For optimal search results and presentation, Pure uses several variants of your name. You can find these in your user profile, when you have logged on to Pure: click your username at the top right of the page, then choose 'edit person profile'. Some of the name variants can not be changed:

  • Known as name -- this is used to find yourself in Pure
  • Portal sort name -- this is used to sort in Pure

The following name variants can be edited by yourself:

  • Former name -- the name you were used to be known as, e.g. before or during marriage
  • Default publishing name -- the name mostly used by you while publishing - this will be shown in Pure for all your output (except when overruled manually).
