Spain - Family Name

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a question about entering the family name and middle name on various forms. I've spoke to my significant other and technically there is no middle name, but the last name is two names if that makes sense. Like Jane Doe Smith, with First Name: Jane and Family Name: Doe Smith. Do you think it's ok to just leave middle name blank and put last name like that?

If she does not have a middle name, then you have to leave that space blank.

There are many people with two names that go as a 'last names', my wife has two last name. In all our paperwork we put the last name in the format Doe Smith.

You should have no problems at all.

DO NOT leave a blank space. You should never leave a blank space. Either write "N/A" or put a line through it so they know you didn't skip it or forget to fill it in. No problem having 2 last names.

Second name (segundo nombre) is the equivalent to middle. Use both last names (primer/segundo apellido) in the box for last name. Once spouse gets US documents, he/she would drop the second last name or some prefer to hyphenate them. If there is no segunod nombre, then there is no middle name. That is ok, put 'None' in te box, ensure to use quotes otherwise they might think None is the middle.

My now wife does not have a middle so I put 'None'; once in teh US, I waited until we got the EAD to then get a drivers license/id; otherwise in some states they use the original names (as in the passport) to fill out the forms and you would end with the first last name (primer apellido) as the middle.

Line through it Put dashes like this ------ where the middle name is asked for. Don't leave it blank. Put both last names in the Family/Surname areas on all your forms. My husband has 2 last names as well. Sometimes we put 2 spaces between the names when we typed them to make sure they were noticeable as 2 separate names that act as one 'last name'.
