Help! Fiancee's Mother's name discrepancy

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

My fiancee just found out that her birth certificate indicates her mother's name as Ma., in all our forms and her acquired cenomar, her mother's name is Maria.  During her request of the birth certificate and cenomar online, she also input Maria as her mother's name for both documents. Is this something that's going to be a big problem? Thanks.

Not to worry,  mom isn't applying for a Visa

Probably fine.  If she's from a country where Maria is a common name, Ma. is likely used as an abbreviation (like Thos. for Thomas and Wl. for William).  It doesn't mean her mom's name isn't Maria, just that it was abbreviated to Ma. on the birth certificate.

As long as your fiancee's name is all good, I wouldn't worry about it.    You are not the first to run into this name issue for a parent.  No one has had a problem at the embassy.

Likely a non-issue, abbreviations and contractions are common on such documents.
