Let DJ/X refer to us by a nick name or alternative name

Let DJ/X refer to us by a nick name or alternative name

It's freaky when DJ/X calls me by my first name, as no one else does. Well, maybe the bank manager or landlord does when I'm in trouble, and therefore it's not a thing I want from Spotify.

Wouldn't it be cool if X could use a nickname instead?

It might even be sensitivity-wise to let people change this, as some cultures might not be comfortable with a male voice using their first name, or there may be a cringe/rude/unfortunate pronunciation issue. Others might just be getting used to an emotionally significant name change they're using in private/with friends but not on their billing or social details yet.
