Correct middle initials for compound middle names

Are you one of those with compound middle names?

By compound middle names, I am of course referring to those middle names such as Dela Cruz, Quintos Deles, Villa Roman and the like.

If you are one of them, what then is your correct middle initial?

Is it the first letter of your middle name?

Or is it some other letter or letters?

In its website, the Philippine Statistics Authority or PSA gave the answer to these questions.

The PSA said in essence that it is the first letter of your middle name that is your correct middle initial.

For instance, if your middle name is Dela Cruz, your middle initial will then be “D.”

If yours is Quintos Deles, it will then be “Q.”

And if it is Villa Roman, it will then be “V.”

  1. Meron kasi ako kakilala na DELA CRUZ ang middle name nya, then he’s been using C sa lahat ng papers as his initial, meron po bah affidavit or alike to correct temporarily yung discrepancy or proof kung bakit C ang initial nya instead of D?
