    I’m very happy to leave that choice to you. I have seen many discussions about those two words, but in English I don’t believe there is any similar comparison. For us “nickname” serves both uses.

    If there were two fields, one for “bijnaam” and one for “roepnaam” it would be very confusing in English (and many other languages), as both translate to “nickname”.

    It is an area where the GEDCOM specification shows its strongly American roots!
