In a word; no.
If using Amazon, for example, you will need to use your real name to create the account. You can then put a pen name or "nom-de-plume" in the author field.

Yes, I have received some really helpful answers. It sounds like I really don't have to use my real name.

You can use a own name in relation to the author. If you're selling the ebooks through an affiliate business, they will want your real name .

I understand that but do I really need to put my real name on the book itself?

Hi there, NO you don;t you can use what is called a Pin name.
I am in the process of writing a book, and chose not to use my person name, as some of the information is person, and I do not want to put out there my information pertaining to family and such.

What is your book about if I may ask?
Mine is on FAMILY DYSFUNCTION, hereditary, breaking the chains.

Much success, and look forward t hearing back on your success.

I have been out for a few months, but am working my way back. Funny got to 97 rank, and became very involved writing since the virus. Hope your journey continues on a successful path!

Happy Monday

Mine is a about a very personal, and very painful issue that I would rather not put my full name on the book. I am not even sure I should be calling it a book its just about 5k words.

No you don't. It's a common practice to use a pseudonym.

No, Rose it is not necessary to use your real name. You can use a pen name for that purpose.

To Your Success!
