Author name in copyright notice

I'd like to package a software [1], but I'm encountering possible copyright
issues. I contacted upstream to know his real name, in order to put it in
debian/copyright, but he wishes to be known as "Master Kernel" (that is the
name provided in the sources). Is that possible?
He also asked me whether it's possible to use a generic name (i.e. John Smith)
for the copyright notice, and I replied I would have asked here.

I believe that the copyright notice should carry the real name of the author,
shouldn't it?
