This video suggests to google yourself. What if you have a very common name such as Johnson or Smith? Should I think about going by a different name professionally, such as a pen name, or is that a strange thing to do?

I think you should go to a different name because only large companies like "Johnson & Johnson" do this - and I am sure they wouldn't do this if they started off nowadays ...
