If I search oh my name, David Lawrence, my ORCID record doesn't appear in the listing. However, several people with David in their names (but not Lawrence) appear. This is a big problem if the purpose is name disambiguation. Even when I enter more letters of my full name and in the format Lawrence, David; the ORCID ranking still places my record listing below other quite dissimilar names. I'm now so concerned about _my_ name specifically but about the inability , as curator of a bibliographic database, to use ORCID to help with disambiguating author names.
