What's in a name?

I'm on the screen that says "Choose a Niantic Username" and I'm stumped. Do I use my Ingress agent name? My PoGo Trainer name? My HPWU Wizarding name? How will people recognize me? What if I don't want the other faction to know I'm in a raid and not defending against their fields?

    If I have a thematic immersive HPWU username, a thematic immersive PoGo username, a thematic immersive Ingress username, and a thematic immersive Pikmin username, and a thematic immersive Catan username, maybe I don't want to use any of them.

    If a blue-named Pogo player joins Ingress as Enl, they may have a hard time gaining trust.

    In the long term, it would be nice to see a set of profile options for:

    - share my Ingress Agent name, level, and faction.

    - share my PoGo Trainer name, team, and level

    - share my HPWU Wizarding name, profession (s), and level

    - share my Catan name, tribe, and faction.

    Then people would be searchable by any name they have shared, and groups could be filtered by game, level, and game faction. (I.e. form a group for coordinating PoGo raiding with high level yellow players.)

    The Niantic Chat needs to offer added value if it's going to replace entrenched external chat groups.
