    Middle Name on Passport?

    So I am applying for my passport to go to aruba in the coming months, but I am slightly confused.

    I have a middle initial on my Gov ID, but my full middle name is on the Birth Cert I am going to be submitting

    Do you put your full middle name on the passport app, or just the initial?

    I think how it is listed on your birth certificate is he correct way.
    Check the Dept of State (passport) FAQs and see if that is answered there.

    Mine has my 100% full name....and its my birth name. Its the only time I have used it in my life...license, home etc...nothing else has my actually birth name. Strange now that I think of it..I am a "junior" but don't use it except on my passport, and the tickets I order to leave the country, lol. Make sure it all matches so you don't have any explaining to do at check-in.

    My wife does not have a legal middle name (none of birth certificate). Now here's the but. When her mom applied for her SS number along time ago she used her Confirmation name (you Catholics know what that is). So her SS account has her with a middle name. There may be a potential problem on the horizon.

    Get the rosary out and start praying to St Jude Thaddeus.

    What does the application say? Middle NAME or middle initial?

    I'm pretty sure it wants a full middle name since my passport has my middle name, and I would never offer it up just because

    I believe the application has to match your proof of identification document. In most cases this will be your birth certificate.

    That's right Peg. And if you apply for TSA Pre-check/Global Entry that name has to match also.
