I have two credits where my name is misspelt - the credits should be listed as Marc O Merlino but it has been listed instead as Marco Merlino. I signed up to IMDbPRO and claimed my page - please help me resolve this issue. Thanks. https://www.imdb.com/name/nm9427393/

To submit a name correction, go to the name page, click the Edit page button and choose Name Correction or Merge in the form.

How do you want the name displayed?

Marc O Merlino
(No period after the middle initial.)

or

Marc O. Merlino
(A period after the middle initial.)

Hey thanks for your message GMJ!

Ideally, I want it displayed as Marc O. Merlino (a period after the middle initial)

If it's easier to have the correction made without a period - I'd take that just so I can have this corrected.

I'm glad you wanted the period after the middle name because to have it without would take a staff member.

I've added the name correction for you referencing this thread and hopefully it is accepted by IMDb.

Thank you so much for all your help - the name has now been corrected.

It still says "as Marco Merlino" on the credits is that normal? Or is there anyway I can have that corrected too?

I forgot to uncheck a button when I submitted the name change. I've removed the attributes.

Hi, Adrian:
I forgot to uncheck a button when I submitted the name change...
...and you did proceed correctly... he's credited on screen as Marco Merlino in both films....

That's a weird mistake for the credits to make.

Who can tell me what is the name of this film, or is it just a picture?

Hi, J Jane:

First, one problem per thread, please. This is a question unrelated to Marc's issue... Next time, please start a new thread...

Well, here's your answer. Those still frames feature Victoria Justice and Matthew Daddario in Naomi and Ely's No Kiss List (2015).


Cheers!
