I have several accounts on IMDB due to people mixing up my middle and last name. I would like to combine all my pages under one page that combines my middle and last name. Currently I do not have a page that has my full name listed so I cannot merge all the titles under my full name as the page doesn't exist. Any information on how to do this would be greatly appreciated!

Joie: To advise you better, please let us know:
  1. What are all the IMDb name pages that pertain to you? Please provide the links to them.
  2. For each of your films or TV shows, how did your name appear on screen in the credits? Or if you were uncredited for a particular project, let us know that too.
  3. What is your preferred name under which your IMDb name page should be listed and which you will be using in the future?
Once you provide this information, the contributors here should be able to help you.

Are there "any" onscreen credits using the Joie Estrella Horwitz full name?

I am not sure, but does not seem likely as they have no used my full name in any of the productions on IMDB.

Do you have any questions on how to do it yourself, from all the other replies?

You will have to pick one page and merge the names into the one.
This is done at the bottom of each page.
It is the edit button pictured here below.
If it's too difficult let me know.

Joie,

Following up on the other messages and the help link pages, there are at least two ways to submit the updates. It does not matter which method you use. Whichever path you choose, the final result should be the name pages merged into one and correcting the name on the filmography to your preferred name.

Option #1

Submit name mergers to all of the name pages.
After the name merger submissions have been processed and completed, submit a name correction to the page.

Option #2

Submit a name correction to just one of the name pages. After the page has been processed and completed, submit a name merge to the page with the corrected name.

Also, you've mentioned that you are not sure how your name appears in the closing credits of the projects. For each name merge submission, make sure the checkbox to the left of the following statement is checked.

Preserve previous name on existing credits.

Also, in the Explanation box, write a brief statement on why the information is being changed. You can also post the URL of this discussion page as well.

Processing may take 2-3 days for some of the updates so please be patient.

I hope this helps. Please write back if you have any specific questions on submitting the updates.
