Two Passports, Two Names?! HELP Dearly Requested! :)

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone, been reading Fodors for a while, and thought I would finally sign up to get some of your expertise!!!

I am a dual passport holder, and I have a LONG LAST NAME. LONG. I plan on shortening it on my Canadian passport (to the first six letters). It is 16 letters long and, from what I gather, will be either a pain in the ass to change (too, to the same shortened name) through Greece or maybe not even possible!! I am worried about surrendering my passport, and not getting it back!

I am looking for help/suggestions/advice/whatever! Is it OK that I have my Canadian passport as a shortened version of my Greek last name? I will only ever use the passport/ticket name of the country I'm travelling to, as I know enough to have tickets matching names. Or could this be a problem when returning to Canada? (I only ever remember being asked for a passport when I return, never a boarding pass...) I know some have passports with their maiden names still on, or names different from their husbands even after marriage.

Please, any words of wisdom, personal stories/experience or what have you would be GREATLY appreciated! :) :) :)
