It should be listed however it is listed in the book.  That's the way 
libraries and booksellers do it; and so should BookShare.
This happens more often than you believe especially with women authors who 
may have several different names in a lifetime.
Elisabeth Elliot, for instance, sometimes uses her current husband's last 
name, Gren, as the copyright rather than her first husband, Jim Elliot, 
who was killed in Ecuador in the mid 1950s.
I believe that she, when one of her copyrights cam up for renewal, 
switched from Elliot to Gren.
Some authors include a middle initial on one and not on another book.
Just follow the book's lead rather than the way we think it should be.
The way it should be is the way the book has it, whatever that might 
happen to be.
Gustavo's seeming inflexibility may be in part to a reaction of some 
submitters/validators doing things their way rather than the book's way.
