As far as i can tell they do not really care about your full name and/or your name at all, but who knows, maybe you trigger additional check if you put something propostrous for your name. After you finished and submitted this form, you get text saying that GitHub will contact you in a few weeks. Maybe its true for others but i got second email almost instantly, which confirmed that i now have access to Student Developer Pack.

Again, go here, click Get your pack and voila, you have claimed teh Student Developer Pack.
