My new Name is Dotchka! - 17 Sep 2010
I have recently being doing documents. Now this in Bulgaria can be quite
a convaluted process. But unless you have documents you cannot get anything done. At least officially. My latest document, was to get the
ability to work in Bulgaria, which requires an EGN (their equivalent of NI No). I automatically qualify for one of these after 5 years residence, but thought
I would try and get one early as they are quite useful things to have when getting other things done.
The lady in the local document office when I visted there told me there would be no problem, as I had all the other documents, they were having a
problem with the computer though. The program that registers people requires three names, first, middle and family. The problem being that I only have two!
This may seem trivial but if I can't get a record on the computer then I can't get my EGN! After much telephoning around, and checking with others in the office
(about two hours of shrugging shoulder!) they decided to insert my middle name as a full stop! = dotchka!
So in Bulgaria my middle name is officialy . and has to be used whenever I write my name, I am at the moment relearning my signature to incorparate the full stop.
