How does one create a profile for a person who used several different first names?

I created a profile for Oscar Auerbach, my wifes's maternal grandfather. Oscar used several different names during his lifetime. He was evidently born "Schlije Wolf Auerbach" in Galicia, began using the name "Oskar Auerbach" in later Austrian records, then changed that to "Oscar Auerbach" after he came to America..

I will explain all of this and a lot of other interesting facts about him in the bioography. For the profile fields.I have used "Oscar" as his preferred name, "Schlije Wolf" as his birth name, and "Oskar" as another nickname. Does that sound about right?

That sounds like a good plan. With the individuals who used a variety of names, I think as long as there as least a note of the different names in the profiles, it's really up to the person creating it. Good luck!
