Trying to change name on PayPal.

When I first created my PayPal account, I only associated my credit card to it, and so I used my name as it's shown on my credit card with the second part of my first name shown as just an initial. However, I'm now trying to link my bank account to my PayPal, and I'm concerned that I would get charged a fee  because of how my name is incompletely spelled. I tried to change my name, but I was asked for a marriage or divorce certificate, neither of which I have, or something called a deed poll, which we don't have in the Philippines. Even if we did, it wouldn't apply in this case because I didn't change my legal name, I'm just trying to correct the one that's on PayPal.
