Don’t use nicknames, assumed name, deviations in spelling used, or omit any part of the birth name. Use it as it appears on the birth certificate. Don’t worry about changes to the name (married name, etc.), just stay with complete birth name. Don’t count Jr. Sr., III, etc. following the name. The only exception to this is in the case of adoption shortly after birth, and here the name given in the adopting home should be used.
