Thank you for your input Madeleine and Glass Jigsaw.
There are a few threads that may explain the name "William Shakespeare". Firstly they had a real guy with a quite similar name. The best pseudonym is one that has plausable deniability. Playwrights such as Kydd and Marlow had recently been killed (in 1593) so it was a good idea to have a strong cover.
The name is one of the strongest links to De Vere.
We cannot overlook that Edward de Vere, Earl of Oxford (1550 – 1604), “one of the best in comedy amongst us” (Francis Meres, Palladis Tamia, 1598) and the “most excellent” among the poets in her Majesty’s Court (William Webbe, A Discourse of English Poetry, 1586), was associated with Pallas Athena (Minerva) by two separate literary contemporaries. Gabriel Harvey praised the Earl in 1578: Your countenance is shaking spears [“vultus tela vibrat”]; and Edmund Spenser, alias Colin Clout, alias Pierce, alias E.K., 27 years old, wants the dramatist Edward de Vere, alias Cuddie, to write heroic histories, to bring the muses onto the stage accompanied by Bellona, goddess of war.
