Bill Turner points out that the driver’s license separates out the Family name and the Given Names.
And so it is on the Maryland Driver’s License.
Of course, state citizens don’t need licenses, but this image is still helpful. More after the image.
I find it odd that they will relentlessly ask for the first and last name, but on the license that say family name and given names.
I always say, “My given name is…” as well as other wordings.
Bill says we should not use the name of the father (the family name), as that is the name of the trust and that makes us trustee, whereas we are and need to stay as the beneficiary.
We can use the names given to us. And we were not given the family name.
