Upwork and Paypal name does not match


I added my paypal account to payment methods but right away I got a message: 

Payment method verification in progress.

Your payment method has been deactivated because the beneficiary name on your payment method does not match the name on your Upwork account.

I'm not sure why I get this warning because I checked my names both on my upwork and paypal profiles and they are exactly the same. Or am I looking at the wrong places?

Can someone help me with this please?

Hi Giorgi, 

Please allow for 3 days for the verification to be completed. If you're still experiencing the same problem after this, let me know here. Thank you.
