Question First Name Last Name Issue

HI

i need help to fill my form for identification no.
My full name is "Maria Rabbani" (two words) as it appears in my passport. I don't have a sur/family name or last name.
While filling the form should I treat my second name (Rabbani) as my last name and my first name (Maria) in the rest of the name field OR the whole name (Maria Rabbani) to be in the Last Name Field OR Rest of the Name Field ??

hi there
i had the same problem .i sent ecfmg people a mail about my problem .here is what they said :
Dear Doctor,

I am writing in response to your email below.

Please be advised that ECFMG is currently unable to process your name change request as detailed below because our computer system requires that if an applicant does not have a last name/surname, then the applicant’s first and middle names must appear in the last name field. Thus, your name “Farhaan Masood” appears in the last name field on the ECFMG computer system so that when a document is generated from the ECFMG computer system, your name will then appear in the correct order.

If you have any additional questions in regards to this situation, you may contact me (Rosemary) directly via the telephone number 215.386.5900.

Sincerely,
info@ecfmg.org
RC
