Il mio nome è Giancarlo

From now on, you can call me Giancarlo.

If you're a baseball fan, you might be familiar with the exploits of the rightfielder formerly known as Mike Stanton, a slugger for the Miami Marlins. He's a man's man (not unlike myself), standing 6-foot-5 and weighing 250 pounds. He also hits baseballs really really far.

Well he's gone as Mike for the majority of his professional career. According to an article here, "His mom calls him Cruz. Teammates call him Bigfoot." But his full name, according to the article, is "Giancarlo Cruz Michael Stanton. He's not Italian, and Giancarlo isn't a family name -- his parents just liked it."

So here's the question. If you had the option to go as Giancarlo or Mike, which would you choose?
