In my visa
Surname : SINGH
Given name : RAM

In my i94
family name: (blank)
given name: RAM SINGH

In my Current i20
last name: LNU
first name: RAM SINGH

In my SSN
Last name: LNU

In my EAD OPT CARD
surname: SINGH
given name: RAM

I am facing troubles. I am thinking to get a new passport by splitting my name to SURNAME: SINGH and GIVEN NAME: RAM.
I am told that for employment, my name in EAD card should be same as in my SSN . I need to split my name in ssn, I can do it on basis on my EAD or i need my corrected passport? Do i need to get i94 corrected too?
