Nick confusion

I have a nick that resembles that of another user on IRC to the point where people who are not expecting to see a similar nick mistake my identity. So I have this problem: Do I change my nick to something which avoids confusion but in some sense isn't really me? Or do I hope that any confusion settles down in a week or so?

While I appreciate the local precedence rules and think that they're very important, I've also tried to invest in my own identity on the internet for a long time now and use this name in many significant forums.

I hope and pray that the confusion will settle down in a couple of days. Otherwise I bite the bullet.
