The ‘Known As’ name field is where you can enter the name you normally use and like to be addressed as. For example, you may wish to be known as Ben rather than a full name of Benjamin. Please note, the name you enter in this field is the name which will appear in many places on Compass, for example in search results if anyone searches for you. You should therefore ensure that it is a name which other Member’s will be able to recognise you by. Entering common Scouting names, such as Akela, may cause confusion locally if there are more than one.
