What is Groot's "full" name? (First, Middle, Last)

For example, how would he write his name on a job application?

a) First Name: I, Middle: Am, Last Name: Groot

b) First: I am Groot, Middle: I am Groot, Last: I am Groot

c) or just Groot for every field?

How does he write his name?

    Why would he even need to. Instant hire. Bypass HR and their “process”. – Paul D. Waite Jun 28 '18 at 22:35

    Who says Groot can write? And, of course, since other characters (at least in the comics) can apparently correctly interpret "I am Groot" as whatever Groot was trying to communicate, if he can write, it's possible that it would come out in a more standard form. – RDFozz Jun 28 '18 at 22:46

    Given that his problem is in his larynx, I'd say writing wouldn't be such an issue for him. – Möoz Jun 29 '18 at 0:33

    i don't see how this is opinion based as-it, it's asking a factual question with a factual answer. just because we may or may not know the answer doesn't mean it's an opinion. – KutuluMike Jun 29 '18 at 15:08

Groot is (apparently) a mononym. Presumably he would be, on the sort of form you're describing

First Name: Groot.
Surname: N/A

    It would appear that his height is not properly measured in this arrest photo. – Verdan Jun 29 '18 at 0:32

    Yes, but is his name "Groot" or is that what everyone thinks it is since that's all he can say? What if his name is "Johnson Michaeltown" and he can write that just fine? – Möoz Jun 29 '18 at 0:45
  • @Möoz - I can't find any reference (in the comics, film novelisations, scripts) to him having another name than Groot. His re-born self is consistently called "Baby Groot" – Valorum Jun 29 '18 at 6:04
  • @Möoz Rocket can understand Groot and still calls him Groot. I'd assume from that his name is likely to be Groot. – TheLethalCarrot Jun 29 '18 at 8:23

    I don't know if Groot is really his name; as I understand it, every one of his species vocalizes the same three words. It's possible he has no individual name, or that his name isn't something that can be vocalized. Still, as far as every other species is concerned, that's his "name" so this answer is the best we can do. – KutuluMike Jun 29 '18 at 15:12
