Surname field Blank in Passport "Name Bifurcation"

I dont have surname mentioned in my passport and any of my educational certificates. Now my H1B Petition (I797B) got approved with the same name on passport (Satyanarayana Raju), can I apply for “Name Bifurcation” spliting name as Fristname: Satyanarayana and Surname as Raju.

Will this "Name Bifurcation" will effect my H1b stamping as I797 was approved on the name as in passport, please solve my problem.

Hi Raju,

I am in similar situation where Surname in is blank and Given Name contains full name. My I797B has been approved. Can I go for name bifurcation in new passport. WIll it involve any amendment to approved petition?

Thanks in advance.
