But you can still be a paid member, if you wish, without having chosen an SCA name. A Society Name is not a requirement of membership.
There are things you must be a paid member to do, such as hold office, or authorize to fight, as well as avoiding the $3 non-member surcharge at events.

Well thats not exactly true... In some Kingdoms most notably the
Middle and Northshield, to be an authorized fighter you have to be a
paid member... You can go to local practices until you authorize but
cannot fight at events...

an office without becoming a paid member.
