Name Change (shortened name to full name??)



I'm new to Upwork and only have been active for about 1 month. Today I received a notification bar on top that asks if I want to get an identity verfied badge, so I was like why not. And then I realize the current name I registered is a short-form of my whole name. As a Hong Konger my name has three chinese (surname + 2 given name) + 1 english name (4 words in total in the ID), and I usually only go by my english name + surname. 


I don't dare to do any changes or verification without consulting Upwork staff first, because I saw some accounts saying they got suspended. Please reply or reach out via email! Thanks a lot.
