This is the correct French for "pen name". The English expression "nom de plume" is not French, despite the fact that plume is French for "pen".

It is sometimes used in English to mean specifically the name adopted by someone underground or as a war leader, since guerre means "war". However, in French it has a wider meaning, and corresponds also to "pen name" or any other pseudonym.
