The usage is the same as 'nom de plume' and 'nom to rigueur'' but the context is different. De guerre denotes falsehood, though not necessarily with negative intent. For example; Mr Darcy is the nom de guerre of the notorious womaniser John Smith. Going by the nom de guerre of Mr Darcy, John Smith tricked the young woman into marrying him with the promise of family fortunes. Distinguish: Nom de plume - Which is a nom de guerre relating specifically to writers. John Smith writes under the nom de plume of Mr Darcy. Distinguish: De Rigueur - which is a falsehood, but also fashionable, either playing to etiquette or taken up on a whim. Mr Darcy is the nom de rigeur of John Smith, recent heir to the Smith fortune. (Now that John Smith is rich, he uses the name Mr Darcy because he feels it's more appropriate to his station as a wealthy gentleman.) John Smith took up the nom de rigeur "Emiliano" shortly after his debut. (John Smith is an impressionist artist and felt that his original name was too plain to give him credibility.)
