English term or phrase: Father\'s/Parent\'s maiden name
Dear all,

I am translating a Certificate of Birth from the State of New Hampshire, US.

I find this entry a bit strange.

Father's/Parent's
Name: 1 2 3 (three names)
Maiden: 3 (3rd name under the above)
Age:xxx

I know that "Maiden" referring to a woman means "Nom de jeune fille".

Referring to a man, I am kinda confused.

It is Prénom, Nom (de famille).

Thank you very much for your input.

Explanation:

"à la naissance" - pour le différencier du "nom de naissance" (birth name).

Aussi, "nom patronymique" lorsque celui-ci est transmis par le père. Il figure sur l'acte de naissance.

Reference information:
2. What is a maiden name or legal name change?
A maiden name is your last name at birth.
If you have had a legal name change your original vital records would have been permanently changed either by yourself or the courts. Your new legal name would be your new maiden name.
Taking your spouse's last name is not a legal name change and would not have altered your original birth vital record.
