What is involved in doing this? Since it is my middle name I don't have to do anything to complex like a name change do I? I want to be able to use it on my checking account and sign it as my signature. Anyone know what I would need to do?
Happy Birthday, Desi!
I've used my middle name my whole life. I have credit cards in my middle name. I've bought automobiles and a house using just my middle name. However, I've been forced to use my first name in some instances (college, work). In those instances, I insist they spell out both my first and middle names and not do the middle initial. It's worked very well for me.
As for banking, about six or seven years ago, I had my check book stolen and the jerk wrote over $700 in checks. My bank at the time (Bank of America aka Bank of Evil) gave me all kind of hassels because the signature the crook used was very similar to mine. Once I finally got my money, I closed the account and went to a new bank. Since then I have put my first name on the account and used my middle name on the signature card. This gives me the ability to use the name that I've always used and it also gives me an 'extra' amount of security. My banks in Texas and Arkansas have had no issue with this.
