YOUR FULL NAME AT BIRTH:
Enter your full name exactly as listed on your birth certificate, even if it is not the name used now. Don't include extensions such as Jr, III, etc.
Foreign Names: Use only names that use the 26 letters of the English alphabet.
Adoption: As a rule of thumb, use the first known name, whether given by the biological parents or the adoptive parents, even if that name was only used for a few days or weeks. If you were given a temporary name, such as Baby Doe, or if you are unsure, use the name you feel most closely fits you
DATE OF BIRTH AND CURRENT FIRST NAME:
Use the date on your birth certificate - first the month, then the day, then the year - followed by the name you use today to introduce yourself in a comfortable, social setting. For example 09/22/1999, Mary Jones. Do not use your business or pen name unless you also use it socially. If you consistently use a nickname as your first name, even if it is not considered a “real” name, use that. When in doubt, ask yourself what you would say if someone woke you abruptly from a deep sleep and asked your name.
