First Names

Postby debate » 25 Sep 2011, 06:47

I am going through my paternal side.

My father's name on the BC is listed as Raimondo but everything else is known as Raymond.

My mother's name on the BC is listed as Mary Ann but everything else is known as Mariann.

I think the mother's side does not really matter and I know I read something on here about submitted an affidavit that says both people are the same. I am going through Chicago.

No way to tell. With an exact translation (Raimondo/Raymond) there should be no problem, but if the consulate wants to make it an issue, it can. Prepare an affidavit just it case, but I think you're clear on this one.

Personally, if I were you, I would just have my birth certificate amended to show my parents correct names - a simple process in most states. It is the easiest way to ensure that the consulate will not give you a hard time.
