    Arrow Go by

    Hi there,

    I was reading a text where it's said:
    "...the woman who goes by Claudia Morrison, worked at..."

    What does "goes by" mean?

    Thanks.

    Here, "goes by" refers to a person's name. But it is more common to hear '...who goes by the name Claudia Morrison...'.
    This phrase is usually used when that name is not the person's real name.
