Sometimes the name is adjusted based upon a credit application.   Could there have been perhaps a credit application filed or attempted in your name with your information?  If so, this is how the name could have been adjusted.  On your credit report, it also shows all Aliases and name variations as well.    JWsister is correct, you will need to file a dispute on the improper information directly with the credit bureau.  Save yourself some time in the dispute, include a copy of your driver's license, social security card and Utility bill.  They'll ask for it and it will just speed the process to prove who you are.

That may be an ongoing problem because of the similarity in names, but not hopeless.  Just file a dispute with each credit bureau showing this error. Since credit accounts are linked by social security numbers, they may eventually get this right.  Not a big problem unless one has poor credit, then it could be a hassle.
