Aha, so what you’re looking for is a signature over a nonced, hashed ID but without the plaintext ID being attached - in which case do you even need the plaintext “real name” at all? After all, if there are only two Stefan Claases in Germany you’ve already leaked far too much information for the subterfuge to be worth the effort. What’s the use case?
