Laws may be structured that individuals don't fit within them. e.g. I went to get a Real ID driving license. My official name includes a middle initial but that is not acceptable, a full name must be used. No supporting document I own includes my full middle name except my birth certificate and that has my single last name. In order to get the license, I would have had to have produced my marriage license or remove my middle initial from my passport. My license was expiring, I opted to rely on my passport to travel rather than make the changes.
