Hello. Thanks for contacting us, Mark.

The answer is really situation-specific. Certain things, such as a passport or a driver's license require legal names.

But one can use a pen-name for a book or a movie credit, for instance. One can do business under another "trade" name (as long as there is no fraud involved).

So, sadly, there is no universal rule. If you can categorize the question better, I can perhaps provide a more on-point response.

Please feel free to do so in the next text box.
