Middle Names Struggles part 2


As I described in a previous post, having a middle name is a bit of a struggle in Japan. This time, when I signed up for a credit card, the credit card company somehow messed up my name really badly. This was relevant because in order to sign up for their online portal, you have to input your name exactly as the credit card company has it recorded.

The way I typically fill out my name is like:

I tried a bunch of combinations of this but none of them worked. After a number of hours of this, I gave up and called their help center. They confirmed my details etc and eventually told me they had used the following combination

This was truly an unexpected combination that I'd never input. I have no idea how this happened. Just another case of where having a middle name sucks in Japan.
