It's preferred at events that you give your medieval name, unless you are 
specifically asked your mundane name (i.e., you need to provide legal 
identity), regardless of whether or not you have a registered name with 
the College of Heralds.  And, of course, it gives you an opportunity to 
be in character: "Why, I am Bro'ccan ap Dafydd!  You have not heard of 
me?!?!?!" :-)
