Need for names to be meaningful

The subject and issuer names contained in a certificate must be meaningful and have a reasonable association with the authenticated names of the end-entities. The name used for the organisation may be a commonly recognised colloquial name. The name used for a natural person must map on the full name of such person given at birth. No name associated with an assumed identity, re-assigned identity or alias can be used.
