Reason for this is, often at times, people tend to bear native names like Chukwuemeka Chibuzor Michael. That’s not gonna be easy for most employers in foreign countries to pronounce or even remember. So, rather than have that stress themselves every time before being able to even mention your name, why not go with your English name instead? If your English name is Mike, use that instead. Hence, your name could be Mike Michael. Now, how does that sound? Much better, right?
Trust me, having an English name has its advantages. At least, In a foreign country.

So, what’s the best kind of site you can create under that domain name? Your personal site. More like, your biography or portfolio.
This can be just a one page site so, it’s really not difficult.
