Should I add my Christian Name in front or at the rear of my existing name?

/Should I add my Christian Name in front or at the rear of my existing name?

Should I add my Christian Name in front or at the rear of my existing name?

This is a relatively common issue raised, and ultimately, it is a matter of your personal choice. Some would prefer their new first name or Christian name to appear in the front and some at the rear.

For example, if your current name is Ong Tan Wee, and you wish to adopt a first name of “John” in addition to your existing name of “Ong Tan Wee”. There are various way your new name can appear in your new Identity Card, such as:-

  •  John Ong Tan Wee
  •  Ong Tan Wee John
  •  John, Ong Tan Wee
  •  Ong Tan Wee, John
