Kate Beckinsale goes by "Sigourney Beaver." Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston, when together, were "Mr and Mrs Ross Vegas." And Johnny Depp uses "Mr. Stench."
These are some of the check-in pseudonyms
that Hollywood stars use to remain anonymous when registering at hotels.
The only time I ever use a pseudonym is when asked to fill in info for things like online surveys or grocery store cards. Then I'm always "Eric Blair." But I'm thinking of switching to Hugo N. Frye

I always use Lucreztia Borgia. Seriously. No-one's called me on it yet.
If I need a pseudonym, I'd use Anastasia Beaverhousen.
When I meet strangers who ask my name I give a fake first name. Usually Rachel or Jill. I don't tell them my last name. And when I'm at a restaurant I give a fake name...usually something cartoony. Pebbles, Minnie, ...just cuz I can hear a million Maegans called before I'll hear a duplicate Pebbles.
BTW, the reference to Teller was about him having legally changed his name to Teller, no first name. His credit cards actually do say that.
Going to other celebrities, Prince Charles travels under such Goon Show-inspired names as Albert Ftang, Lester Smodpule and Charles Fnut.
