For example

Tzvi Aryeh is called Ari and his legal name is Allen

Eliezer is called Eli and his legal name is Elliot

Naftali is called Tuli

I can go on but you get the we can give the teacher a report how to call the child .

if you would like this feature please give it a vote

Not exactly relevant to the  organization I work for  but I can personally see where this is relevant.

 I think if a Yeshiva pays attention to something like this it could make a child feel secure and good impression on the parents. 

Example: My sons name is Tzvi, When I enrolled him for the first time to nursery and then kindergarten I wrote is legal name and in parentheses I wrote Hershel all of his Rebb's called him Hershel besides one when he was much older.  What I didn't like about it was, that as much as I referred to my son  as Hershel and I even mentioned it to the Rebbe, he  kept on going back to Tzvi, Your Son, Tzvi.  

I don't want to get off topic here. But I think its a great idea to ad the option. 

Oh,  ‚ÄčAnd as I am finishing off this post with maybe Twenty interruptions, something came to  my mind. After all maybe it is something we could use. 

We have children that are volunteers for our organization. We don't want to make an extra file for them so we just put there name on the package we send them. And we put their name in the notes. If we could maybe have a field for that, I guess some sites would call it a nick, but in our case it would be an additional person on the account rather then linking two accounts.

Let's say you want to send a letter to the students only, in our case the volunteers. Would that be considered?
