I simplify things by not having a craft name.

I have one name, one screenname, and a nickname.  Also, I suppose there's my True Name, but I have no idea what my True Name is and I'd rather not know.  If I don't it makes it a lot harder for anyone else to.  Having read Absent's comment, what she said makes sense, but I haven't ever knowingly spoken so much as a syllable of my True Name, and I'm uncertain that I ever will, even if I discover it.

My name is Timothy.  For internet security purposes, I'm not telling you the rest of that name.

Screenname is Jorgath.

Nickname is Tim.

At pagan gatherings, I'm Tim.  And I don't give out my last name.  I don't see the need for a craft name.  To me, "Tim" is who I am, and I am who I am.  I see no need to be someone else for some other purpose unless I'm consciously doing it for a good reason, and the few times I've done it I've always been sure to reincorporate the person I became into "Tim."  In some ways, I feel that establishing a craft name would take something away from "Tim," because it takes away an opportunity for "Tim" to do those things instead of "Vladimir RavenFang" (silliest I could think of when tired), and I'd rather that my experiences belong to the same name when possible.  It becomes less confusing like that.
