Make sure the name on the document is spelled correctly, has your name in the right order and was checked against the signer’s ID. The photo ID can have more of the signer’s names than what is on the document, but not less. For example, if the document to be notarized includes the signer’s middle initial and the ID has the middle name spelled out, that is acceptable. However it is not acceptable for the document to have the middle name spelled out but the ID only has the middle initial. Also, it is okay to use a commonly known nickname on your documents, like Tom for Thomas (where “Thomas” is on the ID, but document says “Tom”).
