I’m curious, how do people who can’t read and write cursive sign their name? With an ‘x’ or something?

Good question lets “Axe” it.

I print my name. My priting is stylized, something like an architect's. Only had one bank ever turn down an account based on that.

I can write and read cursive, but I'm more comfortable printing. I moved from Oregon to Washington between the second and third grades. They taught 'cursive' in the third grade in Oregon, so I missed it. They taught 'script' in the second grade in Washington, so I missed it.

I learned to write and read it on my own (rather easily), but I still rely on printing, even when signing a check or a contract. And I'll bet it's easier for you to forge someone else's cursive signature than my printing.
