The forum has been very helpful to me like for so many others like me, over the years ... I have one query though, which haven't been able to get answer to ...
my wife holds Indian passport, but does not have surname on same ... she does not have surname, as it is optional in India ... all her documents in Ireland (GNIB/IRP cards, driving license, bank accounts, etc) have her surname same as first name ... i.e. they all have (not real) first name 'XYZ' and surname 'XYZ' as well for her ...
She has recently become eligible to apply for her naturalization ... but while looking at relevant form 8, the first section itself, is asking for:
1.1) Surname, as shown in passport
1.2) Forename, as shown in passport
1.3) Previous names
1.4) Reason for changing name
1.5) Date of name change
We are though not sure, how to fill these details for her, except field 1.2 (forename) ... requesting to please provide any pointers or suggestion on how to fill up these details ..
