    Signature is unique for each person. Your signature may not give the full name of yours. There will not be any problem. If your name is correct and same in all the certificates, you have to mention the same name online also. Your signature also should not vary from document to document. It should be same always whether it is online or offline. In such case, I don't anticipate any issue in future also. If you change the signature frequently it will create a problem.

    If the signature in the online form has the same name as mentioned in the form and if there are slight variations like missing initial or a short signature I don't think there is a problem. But for the safer side it is always better to put your signature that indicates your full name to avoid confusion. And always stick on the same form of signature you put. Different form of signature in different areas will surely be a problem and the applications will be rejected. So please be careful when you put your signature as it is your unique identification to authorize yourself.

    It's a little confusing to say that your name is different than your signature. If it looks different from the beginning in all legally accepted documents, identity cards, credit cards and cheques, if you have records for the same name and the different looking signature and you are the same person ( in terms of online identity) then it should not matter.

    If you have a quick scribble and full formal signature, then be cautious to use your full signature as short scribble like signatures can be forged better than a full signature. It is important to maintain uniformity both with respect to your Correct given name and your 'regular' signature.

    Signature is generally a short form of name displayed in a unique style by the person. It is not necessary that name can be deciphered from the signature.

    I hope you have given your usual signature there. Actually one should not change his signatures as that will lead to confusion and problem in signature verification. If you have given your usual signature then you need not to worry because if someone at the time of face to face interaction wants to confirm it he will ask you to sign before him and match it with the signature in online form.

    Knowledge is power.

    So far as signature of an individual is concerned, uniformity is the most important criterion. A person's signature must be uniform/same everywhere. The question whether the signature resembles his/her initials of his/her name never arises. Only the similarity/uniformity of signature in all documents are checked.
    Caution: Explosive. Handle with care.

    You have stated that"name differs from my signature in the online form."- But the main criteria is - is your signature on the online form also the same one you use elsewhere normally? If that is so, then you need not worry. Any other documents which are compared for the purpose should also have the same signature.

    Though itis preferable to have the signature giving hints of the name, practically it is not always so. Some people have their signature only as some wavy lines or dots with a few alphabet etc. The main point is that the pattern should be always uniform. The size and ratio aspect may change according to the size of the paper, the pen or pencil used, the comfort and space you get for signing etc. A larger size signature will also be in the exact pattern as the small size signature. When we get to sign on a blank paper, we get more ease to sign than to sign inside a box. However both will have same pattern. That is called uniformity. It is this uniformity that is essential.

    However if you have not signed the way you already signed elsewhere(offline) to this same purpose, then you may need to justify or correct it later, if both are compared and difference found.
