If I remember correctly, both ACX and ACJA make you choose two names when creating a save file.

Name
TAC name

I played online today and when you press select before the mission it only shows each player's TAC name, rank, and PSN name.

During gameplay, only TAC name is shown.

So I guess this means that only the TAC name is used, while the regular name doesn't matter?

I ask because I'm considering starting a new save in order to make my TAC name rockshard. So I make this thread just to double check whether the non-TAC name is ever used online. Because if not, then I guess ill just use my first name, Ben. I don't mind others seeing my first name, I just thought it would be good to know exactly what the names are used for when deciding what they should be. I'd hate to have "Ben" appear in places where it would've been cooler to show "rockshard". But if I pick rockshard for both names just to be safe, I don't want it to backfire and end up as " rockshard, rockshard" on certain screens.

yea, I just started a new data and there is only one text entry, TAC name. Silly me.

After that you simply choose operator and you're ready to go.

Problem: You're limited to 8 characters. Rockshard is 9. Hmm...
edit: Maybe I should make my name Phantom!

Phantom is cool because I like the F-4. And because I'm playing a PSP game online in 2015 so that makes me a ghost. Its actually kind of a spooky name to have for a pretty much abandoned online game. :D

Also the F-4 has a really sweet black color with yellow stripe. I'd be a black phantom.

other name ideas:
Wraith
Legacy

edit: I could always choose a comedic name:
Blonic
Mustache

or I could make it MEEEEEEE

That way when Olivieri yells "You will not. Stop. Meeeeee!!!" it will be a real hoot. Actually, right after that he yells "Nooooo!!!" so maybe I should be MEEENOOO.
