My welcome packet calls my child by two different names. When I selected her, it said "Rachel," but the packet also includes the name "Mutheu." I want to call her  by the right name , but don't know which one she would prefer. I also want to make sure this isn't a misprint.

In some countries ( Uganda, for instance) the family name comes first. Sometimes the custom is to use the middle name and not the first. In other words, naming customs vary. When you write your child, you can ask him/her how he/she wishes to be addressed - it’s no problem.
