The original question was-
Other people posted that the names in the signatures had to agree with the names on the register but that was not the case and there was a system in place to cope with the eventuality of a difference between the two and the witnesses could vouch that the person who made the signature and the person named on the register were one and the same.
However there is a difference between what a person may do under the laws of England and Wales and what convention or customs may require one to do.
There are also the demands placed on a person living under an authoritative system who obey what their superiors say no matter what they may want to do themselves.
Some people do not have the strength of mind to do what they want to do and follow convention or custom.

As we have gained from the past, we owe the future a debt, which we pay by sharing today.
