Only if those are your legal names.

Otherwise, you will get a rejection on the background check.  Either because the name doesn't come up at all ... Or it shows someone else with that name; that doesn't match your education, job history, etc.

Use your legal name and if you get hired you can tell them you wish to be call something else... That’s usually just a first name.
