Full name showing in Leagues

Does anyone else’s full name appear in the list of user’s listed in certain League’s? Mine has been showing and I know that I have a Username on the app, but for some reason it’s not showing. Does this only show my name for me or is this public? It’s not a huge deal, but I’d prefer to have my Username / Screen name visible instead of my actual name. Just wondering what the deal is.

You probably have your name set in your profile, which Duolingo will use by default. Go to Your Profile and remove your name to use your username instead. In general, it's not a great idea to use your real name on the internet if you can help it. Would be funny if I was actually Mewtwo himself on a laptop trying to become multilingual, lol.

Thanks everyone! I just shortened it to my first name and that totally worked within settings on the iPhone app. For some reason I guess I just assumed it would be using my username like a screen name in the program. All good.
