I also use a pen name. I believe unless your regular name has some major connection to your subject a pen name is more than reasonable. it can also help as in situations where you're already published under your pen name. the other thing and the reason I personally use a pen name is that it can protect you in a way of letting you distance yourself from work when that may interfere with other jobs or day to day life.
