I think Palpatine was his real name, the one he was born with, Sidious was his Sith name. It's a bit like Anakin Skywalker becoming Darth Vader, and when Vader became Dark Lord of the Sith, it technically annulled Sidious's status as a Sith. And in the books and movies he is refered to as Emperor Palpatine, when they mention his name at all.

In the books, as I recall, most of the neutral systems were conquered by the empire, Palpatine concentrated on the problem or valuable systems first, but he went after everything.
Peace can be found, above all passions. Through passion, I may gain strength.
Through strength, I may gain power. Through power, I may gain victory.
But for every enemy fallen, a new foe rises.
For every chain broken, new chains bind me. Only the Force can set me free.
