Hi,

I need to create my first and new iCloud account that I will use with my iPad :p

My name is composed from: First Name - Second Name - Surname (For Example. Mouse Duck Gates)

What username do you suggest?

mouse.d.gates@

or

mouse.gates@


(Remember the name is invented and I have used some Disney character :D)

Thanks

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.

----------

Do both. You're allowed 2 alises with your iCloud account (so 3 total emails).
I was messing with my aliases yesterday and found they now allow three aliases. I think it was only two before like you said.

If u look at Apple documentation they themselves use firstinitial.surname@icloud

Eg.

j.bob@icloud.com
