For this week's Trivia Tuesday, we're talking pseudonyms.
Some author's pen names are common knowledge like in the case of classic female authors who used masculine names to avoid persecution, such as George Elliot (originally, Mary Ann Evans) or the Bronte sisters (who only kept there pen names for the start of their careers), but I bet (if you're anything like me) there are a bunch of writers out there whose names you had no idea were pseudonyms.
So let's go through some.
Voltaire - François-Marie Arouet
Anne Rice - Howard Allen Frances O'Brien (apparently her mum thought that giving her a man's name would give her an advantage in life...?)
George Orwell - Eric Arthur Blair
Saki - Hector Hugh Munro (not surprising that Saki is a pen name, but I definitely wasn't familiar with his birth name before)
Woody Allen - Allan Stewart Konigsberg
P.L Travers - Helen Lyndon Goff
I'm sure there are many others of note but these are just the ones I've been surprised by recently.
Were there any in here that you didn't know about?
