Van Nostrand name change?

Hey, did Kramer change the name of his first alias? In the episode where he gets that magical jacket back from his mother's ex-lover's apartment, he introduces himself as Dr. Peter Van Nostrand. But later on, it becomes Martin Van Nostrand (like in the episode where Elaine is blacklisted by the AMA). (And of course later he becomes pennypacker...) Any idea why Van Nostrand's first name was changed?

In the Nose Job Kramer is trying to retrieve the jacket and Elaine is posing as Mr. Pepper's daughter who has a fiancee named Peter Van Nostrand. Peter apparently is "real" as the landlord says he has read his book. So they were posing as actual people and not just making up names. I guess later he just held on to the alias but changed the first name. You are correct FDR

Good point. That makes perfect sense, yet I managed to miss that... Thanks O'Brien!
