That is the case in most families. I had an aunt who converted all her nephew's names into some sort of Latinate language, Josef, Roberto, Lorenzo, and so on.

Signatures are the same. Not only do signatures vary with the occasion, check, mortgage application, birthday card, etc., the name does as well, name with middle initial, name with no middle initial, short version of first name with last name, etc.

None of this is surprising or rocket science. Dan

PS This question comes up repeatedly with William Ellsworth Lay, Elzy, Elza, Ezra, or what? Harv in his letters to me referred to him as Elzy and Elza. I finally concluded they were all versions of Ellsworth, so pick either Elzy or Elza, the two most common versions, and run with it.
