Thats as ridiculous as your partner reading in the news that someone called paul was drink driving and thinking it must be you because it is the same name.

Talk to her about it. If she does not believe you then their are probably more serious relationship issues which should be dealt with. 
I don't think Geekzone is the place. But we can try LOL 

As this is not even your real name I would seriously not be worried about it. And nor should she be.

Welcome to geekzone.

I just googled pauliem_nz and found similar results.
I'm not clicking those links at work.

Assuming no one has been to any of those sites, it may be something to do with how that site pushes it's content out to google.
You may find a google adverts/analytics guru here to comment but it does look bad.

Looks like when google went and scanned the site it picked up an un related part of the page. You can see what I mean by going in to the google cached version. Your username is in a related post thing in the side.

Not much you can do. Google is correct your name was present and when you type your username it picks that up as the topic and shows it to you.
