Passport, K3 visa, EAD and SS

Timeline

We got married in Mexico, almost 4 years ago. I got the k3 visa (was done faster than the immigrant visa) in Ciudad Juarez on november, 2006. I got into USA on december, 2006, we filed the Application for employment authorization on may 15 and got approved on october 11.

The thing is we went to get the ss for the 2nd time, (we actually went rigth after I came to USA because the immigration agent at the airport told me that was the first step and the ss told me to wait for my authorization fo employment) and he agent said that there was a problem:

My passport is under my maiden name and my k3 visa is under a wierd format and it's like that in my authorization for employment.

Here is the example:

Maiden name: Mary Devine Tancer (in mexico, the Devine is the father last name and Tancer is the mother last name)

K3 visa name & employment authorization: Mary Devine de Stevens (Stevens is my husband last name, so they changed my name without even asking me)

I understand the doubt of the ss agent, the tradition in USA will be Mary Stevens, erase my parents last name and put my husband last name, so he asked me to make sure that is gonna be my name in USA and I wolud like to be just Mary Stevens.

I believe that since in Mexico, when you get marry the name don't change, you keep you maiden name forever, and thats why they changed like that. So, my question is, sould I get my ss with the name on my visa and ead? do you think is a mistake? can I change my name in the future? the ss cant put me Mary Devine if I don't have any document under that name?

Well, here is the story, I hope somebody could help me or if anybody want to ask me something about my whole immigration experience, I will help with all my pleasure, thats why I made I little resume of my process.

Thank you and good luck to everybody!!

What is the name you would like to use and have on your SSN record? You say you would like to be "just Mary Stevens"

and then you ask if you SSN record can have the name that's on the EAD card. So which is it?
