@Jessy727:  Just put what you want on the application. This seems to be standard for most states based on my own experience and that of friends.

I think it’s much more complicated to do what you’re describing. You could drop your middle and add your maiden but I’ve heard people running into issues with adding the maiden to the middle. I’d call ahead if you’re adamant about it. Good luck!

Dunno how it is elsewhere, but before I got married, my husband and I signed our desired names on our wedding license. Whatever we wanted it to be. I changed to his last name. Then, once our marriage was on the books, all I had to do for social security is put on the application my desired name, but it needed to match what I had on the license.
