Help with second name confusion

okay so i need some advice here. i'm in the us on a k1 visa, got married within 90 days and about to file for AOS.

my parents named me Karin Anna-Lotta Olsson with the intention of having Anna-Lotta be my call name , my 'first name'. it just sounded better with karin before instead of after anna-lotta according to my mom. in sweden this is quite common. now this is causing me some stress. i realize now that i should have filled out all the immigration forms with Karin being my first name and Anna-Lotta my second, but I didn't. and the stockholm embassy gave me the k1-visa without even mentioning it. so in my passport i'm karin anna-lotta olsson but US social security know me as Anna-Lotta Karin Olsson. i'm now worried about my green card not matching my passport. so at the same time as i'm changing my last name to my married name i'm switching the first name around. the thing is i'll be sending in my AOS before i have time to have the new passport. so what sould i do? should i include a letter in the AOS-application that says I want the green card to say Anna-Lotta Karin and explain that I will change my passport in two months? i worry that they will just do the green card name exactly like the name on the k1-visa (but with my new last name to which my marriage certificate if proof of name change), which will then be wrong. then i have to pay a bunch and wait like 6 months to get another green card made (and can't leave the US) on top of the already long waiting period...

has anyone else included a personal letter like this in their AOS package?

thank you!!

As far as I know they will issue your green card in whatever name you put on the forms. Your marriage certificate has the name the way you intend to use it now, right? I'm not sure if having the passport with the names switched will cause confusion, but there are a lot of people on here who took their husband's last name after marriage and filed the AOS forms with the new name. Just be sure that you fill in the space for other names used with your name the way it appears on the passport. Everywhere else you would use your new name.
