Should this person's IMDB name be changed?

Diana Edwards-Jones (who died recently) is listed in IMDB as Diana Elizabeth Edwards-Jones nm3183469. I wonder whether that "Elizabeth" should be included in her primary IMDB name, since all the obituaries that I can find for her just call her Diana Edwards-Jones:

Guaradian https://www.theguardian.com/media/2024/apr/18/diana-edwards-jones-obituary
Telegraph https://www.telegraph.co.uk/obituaries/2024/04/17/diana-edwards-jones-itn-director-robin-day-trevor-macdonald
Times https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/diana-edwards-jones-obituary-death-s8p0890bh

ITN https://www.itn.co.uk/media-centre/itn-pays-tribute-trailblazer-diana-edwardsjones

Press Gazette https://pressgazette.co.uk/the-wire/obituaries/itn-trailblazer-diana-edwards-jones-dies-aged-91/ (includes screenshot of an archive appearance of her with her name as an on-screen caption)


Maybe her primary name should be Diana Edwards-Jones, with Diana Elizabeth Edwards-Jones as her Real Name. What do people think?

It's hard to know how she was credited in the two titles listed on the page (if at all). A standard name correction would usually result in "as Diana Elizabeth Edwards-Jones" attributes on those credits, which would not be ideal.
