name format change in EOI and Visa Lodge

Hi Guys,

My name in passport is in the below format

Surname: Blank
Given Name : first name, last name

Through out the skill select and EOI process i had filled both my 1st name and last name in both family name and given name places like below:
Family Name : first name, last name
Given Name : first name, last name

During the visa lodge should i change it? keep the given name blank and put all my name in family name?
will this be a problem and result to visa rejection?

Dear Mr/Ms Blank. The department has a policy on how to enter names where you do not have a family name. Best find that, read it and act appropriately.
