Ok, another stupid question as I'm  not familiar with your customs and use of names. 

I'm writing out the applications cover letter, intent to marry, ect. so come december all we have to do is enter the date and sign before sending off. Do I use my complete full name in these letter? I mean, its all fun and games for you Americans who usually don't have more than one middle name. I'm Dutch, and I'm Catholic. I have four birth names, lol. The letter would look something like this*:

 

Quote

To Whom It May Concern:

Enclosed please find my Form I-129F, Petition for K-1 Fiancée Visa for Gertruda Maria Hubertina Johanna Killaars, and supporting documents.

 

Quote

 

Dear Sir or Madam:

I, John James Doe, do hereby state that I am legally able and willing to marry Gertruda Maria Hubertina Johanna Killaars, and intend to do so within 90 days of my arrival into the US using the K-1 visa.

 

*names changed for privacy reasons

 

It comes across as ridiculously pompous in my eyes, but like I said, I'm not sure what your customs are and what is expected. 

Thanks for your help guys ^_^

Oh you are going to be in for a treat. I got 3 of those puppies (doop naam) and than there is the given name (roep naam). Get used to running out of space on forms, having to explain to your new friends what is what and why and of course having to pronounce them. 

 

For the letter: I went with initials and last name. I only use my full name when a form specifically asks for first and middle name.

Yeah I already went through that with the kids. Great conversation starter though as it's both my grandmothers name and my godfather and -mother. Which turned into a conversation on what godfathers and -mothers really are, since you don't have those in the Baptist church. lol.

Luckily my first name is pretty universal (Kim) and my last name (which my boyfriend is finally able to pronounce reasonably after 6 months, lol) will be changed to his when I move anyway.

 

How do you do that on official forms then? Same as the letter? I can see that working. I mean, we all know George W Bush. Guess that works.

I'll write my second and third name in the middle name portion. But again only on official forms. Be advised that if you change your last name, you cannot make that change to your Dutch passport. Dutch government will not let you change your last name. You can ad have it added to the passport though.

Actually, you can. I asked one of my co workers  at city hall (publiekszaken) and she told me I can petition the Dutch government to respect American law and change my name. It will change my name on all official papers, including birthcertificate! I'd like to change my name but I most certainly won't agree on changing my birthcertificate so I guess I'll have to settle for adding it to my passport.
