(a)  Add a first, middle, or last name in accordance with a naming convention (e.g., adding a matrilineal surname) (e.g., “Jose Gonzalez” to “Jose Gonzalez Perez,” or “Volodia Shevchuk” to “Volodia Ivanovich Shevchuk”).  This is an exception to the policy that the name must appear on the evidence of U.S. nationality or ID.  If you cannot determine the origin of the name on the basis of a naming convention, you must treat this as a material name change and appropriate documentation required (see 8 FAM 403.1-4)
