FAQ: What's the problem with your mom's names?

Question
You said that you have to register your mom's marriage with RO and change her name on your birth cert because she left out one of her middle names. I have to do the same thing for my daughter because her middle name appears on one document and not another. The Romanian consulate said they are very strict about the names being exact.

Answer
Yes, they're very strict. Her name is just a little different. Basically an Americanised version of her Romanian name. They're been really strict with my mom. She changed her name, the arrangement of it and then got married. So we have to go throught the whole process.

Basically, they're denying that she's still a citizen, even though she is. She never gave it up and besides, the Romanian constitution says my mother can't give up Romanian citizenship, becuase it was required by birth. We're thinking about getting a lawyer.
