    Do both. You're allowed 2 alises with your iCloud account (so 3 total emails).

    I always go with first initial and last name mgates@icloud.com.

    People that know you will recognize they have the correct email address, and people who do not will be not have your real, full name from your email.

    ----------

    I was messing with my aliases yesterday and found they now allow three aliases. I think it was only two before like you said.
