I have one key with multiple uids:
pub 1024R/763BE901 1996-11-17 firstname.lastname@example.org
uid Marc Merlin <email@example.com>
uid Marc Merlin <firstname.lastname@example.org>
uid Marc Merlin <email@example.com>
uid Marc Merlin <firstname.lastname@example.org>

You should only sign the key that has the same ID than the one that you
verified the fingerprint for, but since I only have one key, there is only
one key to verify.
With gpg, you'll get a notice that I have multiple uids or sub-keys, and you
can just tell gpg to sign all of them (the sub-keys are signed by my main
key, so if you trust one, you trust the others)
