So I am a K1 Visa holder applying for AOS

Me and my wife (US citizen) got engaged. But she didnt change her name to my last name. Is it ok to use our names as we used them in the K1 Visa application or the name change is required?

Hi, my name starts with a capitalized i and it is literally İ in my native language. Can I keep using my name this way in the USA too, or my name will change to start with an I? How do I need to fill AOS papers? Thanks!
