Would you all consider George Eliot as a "nom de plume"?

Absolutely.  I'd also include any works by the Bronte sisters, since they were originally published under pen names Currer, Anton and Ellis Bell.

Yes, Rose.   I've made a (preliminary) list of writers who used noms de plume, and I will post it here soon.
