Baby name on Birth Certificate

Postby hwboi » 07 May 2012, 00:04

Hi! I am a US Citizen and my wife is Taiwanese. Our son is about to be born in Taiwan and I was wondering if the name on the english birth certificate needs to match the name on the chinese version (Do they have to be translations of each other)? I prefer to have an English name which will be used on the US Passport that is independent of the chinese name. ANy ideas? My wife will ask the hospital tomorrow, but I was just wondering if anyone ran into this before. Thanks!

Hi,

I just gave birth to a baby girl at a clinic in Yonghe District. The name on her EN birth certificate is Athea Jhoann while on the CH birth certificate they didn't put her CH name which is Jing Hui in pinyin. We were told that the CH name is written on the Household registration instead and not on the CH birth certificate. This is in a clinic setting though, I do not know if the procedure is different in a hospital setting.

From what I've read, the birth certificate is not considered as a valid identification document here in TW since it is not a government issued document, it is the Household certificate which they consider as a valid identification document. The CH birth certificate is used for the Household registration only as it contains the parents' names and date of birth. Please correct me if I'm wrong though.
