In civilised countries, using "fake" names, nicknames, pseudonyms, etc, is not only not illegal, but you can do anything you want with them.

E.g. If you want to put your name down on the banns in the UK as "Mickey Mouse", you are perfectly entitled to, and the wedding can go ahead with you using that name (but it's you who gets married, not Mickey Mouse).

As long as there is not a criminal act or criminal intent, you can call yourself what you like -- even the taxman doesn't mind, as long as you're not trying to fiddle your way out of paying your taxes.

Mind you, it's good news that it's illegal in the States.

It means that an awful lot of awful actors and pop stars can be locked up.
