My son has three words (as per Passport and Birth Certificate) in his
First name: Bxxxx Cxxxxxx Kxxxx
Last name: Pxxxxxxxx

When he entered US, He received his Green Card has
First name: Bxxxx
Middle name:Cxxxxxx Kxxxx
Last name: Pxxxxxxxx

Now i am planning to apply for US Certificate of Citizenship, because i became US citizen. I want to write his full first name under the first name box.

But, on the application if i use the autofill option, i couldn’t fit the full first name (First name: Bxxxx Cxxxxxx Kxxxx ). I can only fit First name: Bxxxx Cxxxxxx Kxxx (which is missing last letter). One option is fill the application with PEN.

I want to ask you kind advice which will be best option from below.

Option 1: Fill with PEN. I don't know if there is any limit in characters in First name on certificate of citizenship?
First name: Bxxxx Cxxxxxx Kxxxx
Last name: Pxxxxxxxx.

Option 2:
First name: Bxxxx
Middle name:Cxxxxxx Kxxxx
Last name: Pxxxxxxxx

Option 3: Remove space between CxxxxxxKxxxx. I don't whether this will be a problem when i apply for OCI, because Indian passport has Given name: Bxxxx Cxxxxxx Kxxxx; Last name: Pxxxxxxxx?

First name: Bxxxx CxxxxxxKxxxx
Last name: Pxxxxxxxx

Please kindly advice on this.

If you have a mac, then you can use the program Preview to complete the form. This program lets you insert text into the field. You create a text box, write whatever you need to and just place it into the proper field.

Since this form doesn't use 2D barcode technology, you can also complete it by hand neatly in black ink. This form will be scanned by USCIS into their system. If you read the instructions, it says you can "Type or print clearly using black ink" -- Page 2 under General Instructions

Yes you can. You will have to fill it out by hand since the computer won't let you do it but you can and should put down the name as it is in the birth certificate.
