How do you set your moniker that appears when you make a coment on a video (or when you post a video yourself)?
My gmail account email is never display to anyone using YouTube or Google for that matter.

If you have a Gmail account, you have a Google account and intern can create a YouTube channel under your main account with a different name.

When I look at my channel for my account there are two shown. One is shown as owner account, no channel. The other is shown as chrisretusn, number of subscribers, no public videos. There is also an option to create another channel, under another name of my choosing.

This my help:

I use what is called a branded account, a different name than the one used with my Google account.
