My name is Vinícius Morais, and I'm new to writing books. I have finished my first fantasy novel. But do I keep my name as the author or create a pen name? The main problem is there's a great poet and composer in Brazil (I'm from Brazil too) with the name Vinicius de Moraes.
The name is not same, as you can see, but for search engines it might as well be. Every place (Google, Amazon, Wikipedia...) you search Vinícius Morais, you will find Vinicius de Moraes's books and music.
I'm not sure if this is bad for me. I really want to maintain my real name in my books, but I need to think. I imagine that one day I will sell some books. Is better to use a pseudonym?
*Changing my name is not possible.
