"Sometimes Credited as:"

I'm about to get my first (formal) screen credit; 2nd unit camera operator. Not as big a deal as it sounds, but to me, it is :)
As you can see, I have a pretty common name and was thinking of being credited as a variation of that so I can be told apart from the hundreds of 'Jeff Miller's out there. I was thinking of 'Jef Miller'; that's a somewhat rare name yet looks/sounds the same. Other stuff like my full name or adding my middle name seem too uptight. I also like the short "Jeffm". I came up with other stuff but don't feel like trying to be artsy or funny.
Is there anything to think about in doing this? I guess I worry about it but the decision will follow me around for a while, heh. Thanks!

Jeff, make your mama proud, use your middle name! It'll also be easier to fend of your friends laughter in five or ten years if you stay away fom nick-names and embrace "Horatio" or "Eugene" or whatever your middle name is, so that watching the titles is still fun with friends.

unless i misunderstood, i think patrick meant to use your full name, as in jeffrey bryan miller. adds a little distinction, a little gravitas....

Oh, oh yeah. lol
I thought about that, seems a bit pompous for me (after all, I'm no Catherine Zeta Jones or John Paul Tremblay) but an idea anyway... thanks :)

Jeff, you might become Jeff Bryan Miller! I mean she probably started as Cathy Jones until her agent got hold of her.
