n incorrect name is not a problem. You just have to endorse it twice, once the way he wrote it and then underneath with your correct name.

You can still cash it with your maiden name.  If there’s a problem, bring a copy of your marriage license with you.  How long ago did he give you the check?  If he gave you a check 6 + months ago, I would contact him out of politeness.  “Hello Uncle ____!  I just realised that I never cashed your generous gift from [bridal shower/wedding/engageent].  I just wanted to let you know that I planned on cashing it this weekend since I waited so long.” 

That way he can move some money if he wants to do so.

I would just bring it to your bank first and see what they say. If it is an issue, then contact him with a short email letting him know.

They won’t cash a check more than 6 months old usually. I would just email him to let him know
