I've come up with these ideas:

  • My name online
  • My online name
  • My web name

"My name used online" is too long for me and I think there must be a shorter alternative.

But I cannot decide on one. Is there any convention about that?

    "My online name" sounds better than others, but I don't really know if there are official conventions for that. – snetch Oct 12 '18 at 20:13

My username from the Oxford Dictionary is

An identification used by a person with access to a computer, network, or online service.


My username is Weather Vane


The noun handle can be used to refer to a nickname, particularly one used on online forums.

b. An alternate name or nickname, especially one chosen for self-identification on online forums or citizens band radio.
