on my imdb page, I'm listed as Mathieu Guez when in fact it should be Mateo Guez everywhere.

When I went to corrected it, the correction page would not allow me to submit the update. It provided a list of "matching name" including my misspelt name and would not accept when I checked the "Warning understood, go ahead anyway".

I also received the following message when i clicked on my misspelt name which was provided by imdb as an option:
"This correction has been rejected. You need to correct this correction before it will be accepted. This correction has no effect.The corrected name is identical to the original name and has been rejected as a result."

I want Mateo Guez as my only name to appear in any of my credits.

If anyone has encountered this problem any guidance would be helpful.

When correcting a name, when you get the list of same/similar names, you need to check the one that says "this is a different person, not already listed.." even though it's really a "different NAME,"  not person.  It's very poorly written and they really need to change it.

This should result in your name page being titled the new way.  As to the individual credits, they should be listed on IMDb as they appeared on screen.  The only way to assure you're only credited that way is to make sure the filmmakers credit you that way.  If you've been credited on screen differently, the listing should have an attribute of "(as Mathieu Guez)."
