    How to file and address properties with multiple names for one person?

    We have a large Hispanic population which culturally uses many more names than Anglo populations . Often times the informal name, the legal name, the name on a property title, etc. will all be different yet it will be the same person. We've run into slight issues when discussing documents for people under different names. For example, a permit will be filed under Jose Ramirez, another will be filed under Joe Ramirez and a third will be filed under Jose Cordoba but they will all be the same person, Jose Manuel Ibarra Ramirez-Cordoba. How can we properly file (when not using property address as a basis) or discuss issues without causing cultural harm or office embarrassment? I have seen cases where the name on a passport and a driver's license are even different for the same person. Thanks!

    Lawyers will tell you to use the name on the title. My first note in the file would contain all the "also known as's". Address is the best way.
