In a nutshell - it depends.

I, as an example, have a middle name that I seldom (i.e. - never) use. 
It does not appear on my PGP key.

The real rule for what a PGP key should contain is your identifying 
name. It might well be that some of the party's participants will refuse 
to sign your key if the names on your key and on your identifying 
certificate are not 100% identical.
