Well the space is called Name, so I would figure the real name if known should go there, and if ever found out should be put in that space, while performance names should all go under aliases/variations.

To help keep people confused some form of sorting of names based on use for albums and music connections would be smart. Assuming with a performer that never uses their real name, has 4 performance aliases which have differing album amounts under them ranging from 1 to 4, then The full name would be at the top, the one with the most albums comes next, etc down the line. Any that have the same amount of albums get sorted by which name has the most albums that came out closest to the date the user looks it up.
