This keeps coming up, so --
Yes "Reality Winner" really is her legal name.
'He always wanted to have a 'Real Winner' so he named her Reality Leigh Winner. It's just a beautiful name. The plan was to call her Leigh because Reality is kind of a strange name but everyone who knew her just loved the name Reality and it stuck with her. I forget sometimes that she has ever been called Leigh – she's always been Reality.'
Apparently "Sara" -- which she used for a while -- is the weird name she decided was better than her given name in her teens.
