Celebrities often use aliases when booking into hotels to try to avoid being besieged by press and fans. Tom Hanks's alias has just been revealed in the media this week, so presumably he will have to think of a new one now! Authors sometimes publish under a pen name, either because they don't want friends or family to know it is their book or to avoid public attention or like JK Rowling because they want to try writing in a new genre without anyone knowing it is them.

Have you ever used an alias or pen name?
