I wouldn't worry about it...At least in my USCIS office when they give you the certificate on the Oath day they ask you to review it before you take it for good. You should be able to still correct it that day. Otherwise, it'll cost you money and you would also need to wait another month to get a new one.

When I had my Oath the officer who conducted it said this about three times: "Review your certificates now, you may also take them home and bring them back today if they need to be corrected because if you do it tomorrow it'll cost you $345".

Good luck!

As Olna said, you can correct this on the day of the ceremony. You may have to wait a day or two to get your certificate but you will take the oath and become a citizen that day. Make sure you tell them that there's a mistake when you check the certificate. If there is a mistake, they may want to see proof of your legal name so take your passport and birth certificate (and of course your green card) with you. If you are using a married name then also take your marriage certificate with you. Edited by JimmyHou

JimmyHou,

I agree with you but in my case - I only wanted to change my first name and to remove my middle name and they didn't ask me for any proof. In fact, the officer said at the end of interview. "Today you can become whoever you want to be so what name do you want to have?". And I said first and last name, and confirmed - no middle name. That's all.
