Signature Affidavit and AKA Statement
The Signature Affidavit and AKA Statement is a variation of the Signature Affidavit where the borrower can list different ways their name has been written on official documents. Common name variations include variations with middle names, middle initials, former maiden names, suffixes to their name such as junior or senior, or 1st, or 2nd should their father have the same name, etc.

The borrower would have to write down all of their name variations, if not already pre-typed in the form, and then sign exactly the way those variations were handwritten or typed for the document to be accepted by the lender. Its also common for this document to have an accompanying oath to be made with the notary public where the borrower swears that all of the said name variations are true and correct.
The type of notarization that a signature affidavit and AKA statement would get would always be a Jurat in my experience. This document is almost always presented with Jurat verbiage from the state where it is to be notarized, so the signer never has to decide what type of notarization to get. This is important, because the signer rarely knows what type of notarization to get, and notaries are forbidden from recommending any particular type of notarization as that might constitute the unlicensed practice of law.
