L's Real Name (Deathnote Spoilers)

So I just read somewhere that L's real name is L Lawliet. People say his name was released on a special card enclosed in the 13th novel. Is this true, or is it just a rumor?

There's a 13th volume that's basically special commentary, extras, that sorta thing.

And he doesn't tell the police force his real name, he just tells them to call him Ryuzaki so that no one outside would immediately know that he was L.

And since it wasn't really confirmed in this thread: Yes, his name really is L Lawliet.

It's hard to say, but considering the popularity of the manga I'm guessing it probably will.

Strange parents, to have given him a first name with only one letter in it. >__> Then again, since writing Lind L. Tailor worked, I suppose L as an initial + Lawliet would also work.

Spoiler warning if you haven't read Death Note: Another Note.

Sorry for bumping but
Wasn't Rue Ryuzaki the name B.B. called himself? I was thinking that's where L got his Alias, seeing as it's a prequal to the series.
