Identity crisis

I mentioned this before but it is bothering me for a long time, about my virtual name Mira Karu.
As I did some research, this is a real name and must belong to someone, wich is not a comfortable feeling. Now adays internet is used by many and a surfboard to make you stand out in the crowd (in some way). Twitter, Facebook and many more sites are the witnesses of our do's and dont's. To be honest I don't feel the urge to tell everyone what I'm doing today or if I slept well last night ! On top of that, you get those messages in your mailbox when posted and not turned off, besides I don't give a damn about the news ! I prefere serious things and keeping a low profile :-) but... that does not mean I'm not active at some degree, mostly for some pictures or clothes I make.
When I was exploring those Worlds besides Second Life, I just picked a name to visite quickly without verifying if that name already existed in Second Life ! So when I  came to Inworldz I took the same name I had just picked out and kept the name Mira Karu.
It was afterwoods I discovered I couldn't take the same name in Second Life because it was already taken.
I like consistancy and not changing like a rooster on a church tower.
Well you can say what's in a name... true...but I have build already a reputation with that name in Inworldz. I do not know the reputation of the other Mira Karu in SL...and don't want to be responsible for other actions on the net with the same name in RL or VW,  and not done by me.
Last week I got an IM saying they liked my clothes IW and in SL... ??? huh ??? I left SL years ago !

Aparently there is a good designer in SL using the same last name ! (twice)

Whiskey Monday or Whiskey Day or the blog Whiskey Shots (names are unique) she started to blog long time ago about ' Single Frame Stories',  earlier she did something similar with words  asking to write a story and we Inworldzians tried to do our best:-)) not with a good result, its not my thing lol :-)

Taking pictures and making a single frame story is a challenge, I love to let my imagination flow, but Whiskey's work is so unique and stands out ! I admire her pictures, she is a real artist. All comes so spontaneous and I love her surealism a lot !
Inspired, I also took a dive into that pool on Flikr and submitted some pictures.
But I never can beat those shadows used in her work , in Inworldz I can not get them so I'm thinking to go back to SL for having them... (I have to try another solution yet before I return )
So I have a dilemma :-) Do I start all over with a fictitious avatar name for my pictures ?
Make a blog for it etc... separate the pictures from making clothes ? On the other hand I do not like to say I'm AKA (also known as) lol.
The new name I have in mind  can be used in both worlds and wont be a Real Name...I'll think about it some more before I jump to a decision :-)  I know, I go slow and always running late...
