I have a name chosen for my YouTube channel which is not my actual name, because I would like to keep my actual name private. The problem I have is that I don't know if I should or shouldn't name the Google profile with my actual name in order to keep it private on YouTube, but still remain identifiable to YouTube staff. Is the Google profile even visible on YouTube? Has anyone else access to my google profile except me and YouTube staff? Everything has stopped for me because I don't know the answer to this simple question. I would be extremely grateful if anyone would help me with this.
