Help Can we use fake name while introducing ourselves to SP?

Hi all,
I got a doubt while I was preparing for CS. If we have a complicated name, for suppose Tynisheida Naquellah Brishonda is it mandatory to tell the SP our full name(Hi I am Dr.Tynisheida Naquellah Brishonda) or is it ok to tell just the last name(Hi I am Dr. Brishonda)? If the last name is also complicated, can we use a simpler fake name (Hi I am Dr.John)?

It does not matter which name you say.

SPs do not know your true name and they are not supposed to know it.

John is OK.

You can also just say "Am your doctor today"
