How to add the common name I go by?

I have a nickname of my second middle name that everyone knows me by. Often when they send money to my account they are thrown by my legal first name is there a way to add my common name? Preferably S. Mina, but even Stephanie Mina would at least help. 

Any solutions?

Hello @Minabeavers,

 

To ensure a more secure online payment environment, the name on your PayPal account should match the name on your government issued identification. This is to protect both buyers and sellers. I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.
