Well, embarrassment seems a little strong. Different style guides have different feelings about the Oxford comma, and different publishers follow different style guides...

comment Amazon question: Can different pen names under the same KDP account be publicly connected?
The name on the copyright doesn't have to be your real name; you can use a penname. You do need an address for the copyright registration, at least in the US so if someone is REALLY hunting you down, they might figure it out. You could use a PO Box in some city you visit a few times a year (there's no real reason for the copyright office to send you anything, so you wouldn't have to check regularly) or use the address of a trusted friend or family member. But the name itself doesn't have to be your real name.

See youtube.com/watch?v=P_i1xk07o4g for my opinion on the debate. (Well, don't see it if you're super-sensitive to mid-level obscenities). "All your diction dripping with disdain"...
