@BlissBound: I haven’t started that process yet, but I’m in Montgomery County and our county’s webpage said that a marriage license from Montco can be used in any county in the state and vice versa.  So I’m guessing the rules about names are the same statewide and you could try searching other than just Philadelphia’s website?  Maybe the DMV would know?

The name change is done by the SSA first, which doesn’t depend on the state.  A state should take the name that you get on your new social security card without question.  I know that some do fight over it but legally, you will be known by your name on your new SS card even if they don’t let you have that name on your driver’s license.
