What is the best naming practice for 2 profile vanity urls that are similar?

I have two Google accounts, 1 regular and  1 Google Apps.

My Google Apps G+ profile  vanity url.

My regular Google acct is offering the following G+ profile vanity url.[add a few characters]

What wording or characters are others adding to differentiate between personal profiles?

One last thing, the regular account is for my personal online presence whereas the Google Apps profile is for my professional hobby presence.

Hi +Lorrie Laskey that's a tough question. I think the important thing is that the custom URL is easy for you (and everyone else) to remember and type. I've seen some people just add a number, which I don't think is ideal unless the number is significant. Maybe something related to your hobby, like LorrieLaskyWriter or similar?

New Custom URL For Profiles Only

I received my custom url  email invitation and accepted it only to find after the fact that the url is for my G+ profile which I don't post from. In fact, I posted a message on that profile page that I am not using it.

Instead, I have two Pages that I post from. The new custom url is not part of those Pages urls at all.

I had envisioned something like the following: choice/PageName

Instead my Page's urls have not changed. So, this is really no improvement, at least to me. Am I missing or misunderstanding something?

Will Page urls be able to use the custom url of the G+ profile eventually, too? Wouldn't that make it easier to find Pages?

This is so disappointing. My Pages are more important than my profile.

Well, that is encouraging news.  Congratulations to you. I hope I am so lucky. :-)

Is there a way to translate a pre-event comment?

Specifically, someone has responded to an Event invitation but I don't know how to translate it.

+Lorrie Laskey  Perhaps that person was trying to tag someone in the post but didn't know how to +mention.

Weby's Profile Is Shutting Down and Moving To A Google + Page

If you want to continue to follow, visit the new Page. Followers can't be added to the new Page until circled first. You will have to add me first.

Where is the new Page?
The new Page is located here.

Why the move?
The move is for practical reasons. First, it may be a matter of time before Google shuts down my profile for using an inappropriate name. Second, I want my personal profile back to use for personal matters.

When will this profile move?
The change is happening now but will take some time and will include copying over some of the posts from this profile to the new Page. 

What will change?
Maybe but only to improve it. Posts will continue to focus on Google Sites topics and topics readers want to know about. Is there a topic you want to know about? Contact me. If I don't have an answer, I'll research it and learn about it, too.

I hope to see you at the new Page.
