App Market reviews name

    Where in the world is the name used for the app reviews stored? I figure it could be in the phone or on google. I just can't figure it out. I just posted my first app review to the market and the name it posted under is my name from german class in high school. I haven't used that handle for anything in years! Where on earth did it dig that up? I figure this must be a buried google setting somewhere but I'm at a loss as to where to look.

    I thought.it was the display name of your Google email address on web mail. As in what other people see when you send an email

    Nope, that uses my real name. I would have assumed the same thing, but apparently not.

    Odd. Cause my email display name is my full name and its the only place I use it. Yet its in my reviews. What about gmail personal information? It's def .in gmail somewhere

    I found it. After Dan's suggestion I checked my setting in gmail. Gmail was set to use my name from google settings. Google settings (personal information) had my real name for a name (hence the correct name used when I send e-mails) but also has a nickname field. I have the other name listed there ... although I don't for the life of me remember ever entering it in gmail or google settings. That must be what the market app uses (if available) for a name when you review an app.
