Also known as a log-in name, screen name, member name, alias, or nickname. It should not be your real first and last name, but something made up that you can remember but that doesn't tell anyone else who you are in real life.

It hides your real identity.

This is a name used by Inspire during login and throughout the negotiation. Since it is the only name displayed by the system to your counterpart, you can preserve your anonymity by choosing an arbitrary user name. In combination with the negotiation name, a user name uniquely identifies one of the two participants in a given Inspire negotiation. A user name is specific to a given negotiation, and can be reused in another negotiation. Thus a user name does not uniquely identify a real user (and is therefore not like a Unix login-id).
