What is the difference between Name, Lived Name and Legal Name fields?

UCPath identifies legal name fields with the label ‘Legal’ (ex. Legal Name, Legal Last Name, etc.). Fields containing lived name information are simply identified as Name (without the ‘Legal’ prefix) - for example: Name, Last Name. 

Legal Name Fields

  • Legal Name

  • Legal First Name

  • Legal Middle Name

  • Legal Last Name

Lived Name Fields

  • Name

  • First Name

  • Middle Name

  • Last Name

Lived Name is the name a person commonly uses and may differ from their legal first, middle, or last name. If an employee has not added a Lived Name in UCPath, their Legal Name fields are automatically copied over into the Name fields.
