Title sounds silly I know, but basically I don't know what my straight up name is and I have a tricky situation, so here it is... I'm not going to use my real name btw just example of the situation. Birth certificate: John Ziggy Zaggy Adams [Ziggy and Zaggy are middle names, Adams is the dad's family name] From here i don't know the timeline of things, but Passport: John Higgy-Adams [Higgy is mother's family name and Adam's is fathers side] I also have a document which states my name was changed from John Ziggy Zaggy Adams to John Higgy-Adams and then further on because my parents got divorced to just John Higgy [Mothers family name]. This document currently doesn't have a stamp or signature because my mother was silly enough to loose it and luckily has copies of the document. I was only twelve when my mother changed my name legally to just John Higgy but now there is not a document in the world thats signed or stamped which states its legally/officialy John Higgy. But On all my certificates and gcse results it just says John Higgy and on others John Higgy-Adams. So on my passport its John Higgy-Adams and my Bank account is under the same name. So should i just say i put John Higgy for short? Please help out because i took the document to my recruiter because he isn't sure of my name and heh said the document is useless because it isnt signed or stamped so i said i'd get it signed or stamped but now im conidering just forgetting about it and going with John Higgy-Adams. What do you guys think? Messed up situation i know, but IM VERY THANKFUL FOR ADVICE AND REPLIES. BTW My name obviously isn't as silly John Higgy-Adams - sorry if anyone out there actually has that name haha, but cheers guys im stressing abit over it and just am generally thankful for anyone who helps out.
