My child Beipahnokhei's photo and info recently updated.  Can I have this new photo emailed to me?  Also, 'Beita' has been added to his name.  He has always signed his letters as 'Beipahnokhei', so I'm wondering if this is his last name?

Jamie, Monday morning when the ladies at Compassion see your question, they will email a high quality jpeg of your child. No idea on the name thing. Maybe somebody will have an idea. What country is he in?

Hi Jamie! I just sent you an email with this sweet boy's newest photo. In many parts of the world, they do not have last or sir names like we do here in the US. While I do not show a reason for this update in his name, we often change children's names and birth dates in our system to match legal documents for that child. It is possible that this second name is a tribal or family name from his father's family or name. His personal name is still Beipahnokhei so I would continue to address him by that name despite this addition of another name.
