    On what? Whatever it is, ideally it's for people who either preferred to be called by an abbreviated name or to avoid being called an abbreviated name. Not really designed for "My full name is Dominic Woods, but I prefer to be called
    Arthur Charlie-Charles III".

    You dont say in what context, but yes if its something like middle name or an abbreviation of the name.
    If you want to change it, then just start using your new name.

    If you want to do it officially then you can do it by deed poll or by seeing a notary. That costs money though.

    If you put "_____ Elizabeth ______" in the full name both and then put "Elizabeth" in the preferred name box then at least it'll have some context then
