Q: If someone has altered their name, for example Tim to Timo or Rachelle to Shelle, should you also figure the changed name as an added influence? If so, would you just do the changed first name, or would you recalculate the whole name?
A: In the case of the “current name” report, you would calculate your whole “current name” – first and last as you use it in everyday life, or how you normally introduce yourself. i.e.: “Shelle Smith”. If you always use a middle name for everyday use too, as in “Shelle Belle Smith”, you would calculate that in there too.
