Google+ Youtube Channel HELP!

Greetings all!

I am working on a MacBook Pro laptop. I just signed up for my Google+ profile page. I am also trying to start a YouTube channel. However I want my Google+ profile page to use my real name and I want my YouTube channel to be a different name, but I still want them linked.

I have read several articles on this as well as watched tutorials and still cannot make this work.

You would think the answer would be here:

But alas, it is still confusing and not working for me.

Again, I want to have a Google+ Profile page with my real name and I want it linked to my Youtube Channel with a different name.

I see one blocker. Big one.

This requires your real name to be available. If not, you can't do this.

Those already on both gmail, google, and youtube before the merger have unmatching profiles, but the new ones seem blocked from it.
