How do you write your name professionally?
In a formal first reference to a faculty or staff member, use the person’s formal first name and last name followed by degree (if applicable) and lowercased job title. If the individual routinely uses his or her middle name, include it.
How do you write a full legal name?
Full legal name means the applicant’s first name, middle name(s), and last name, without the use of initials or nicknames, as it appears on the applicant’s presented source documents.
How do I know what my legal name is?
A person’s first legal name generally is the name of the person that was given for the purpose of registration of the birth and which then appears on a birth certificate (see birth name), but may change subsequently.
Do middle names matter on legal documents?
If it asks for your full legal name, then it wants your complete first, middle, and last name, no initials unless your middle name on your birth certificate is just an initial. Choose your name for the purpose of these documents, and then be consistent from there.
