Default WordPress Initial Setup

I started to install Wordpress, and then backed off. It asks for an Administrator Name and Administrator Nickname. But it doesn't say how these will be used. Are they publicly displayed? Is the Administrator Nickname used as the name for the writer of the blog? And what about the Administrator's email address.

Anyway, I guess I could install and then find out. But I have done this too many times with forum software. And this time I'd like to not get done with the install, only to find out that my choices for the Admin will create problems.

I think the Administrator Name will appear as the blog name.

You can change it later, however, if not.

Once set up and logged in you can go to My Account (top right in backend) and choose whether to be known by your nickname or your first name for entries. The email address is hidden, and in any case can easily be edited on the profile page.
