Dear 100 Hour Board,
My given name has an extremely common shortened form, like Joe or Mike. I go exclusively by the short form, and only my mom can call me by the long form (she earned the right in labor).
On LDS Tools, however, people only see my full name. That means people call me by that name, and I have to correct them. How can I change this? How can I change my LDS account to show my shortened name? I already tried changing it on the main lds.org account settings, but it has had no effect.
I can confirm that you can do this as a ward clerk or bishop. I've done it before as a branch president.
Keep it real,
My roommate just asked a member of the bishopric to change it. Worked for her.

Your bishopric will probably have the ward clerk do it, so you could probably just cut out the middle man if you want.
