When/how to fix omission mistake? (K1, I-129F, Other Names Used)

Hello everyone! It's been around 200 days or so since I filed the I-129F to bring my boyfriend to the US on the K1 visa, and I realized that I might've made an error. I have not yet received my NOA2.


Around 12 years ago, my boyfriend changed his name legally. He had a first, middle, and last name, but he didn't like his first name. Now his middle name is his legal first name. His passport and other documents have just these 2 names now. 


Unfortunately, I forgot all about this when I submitted the I-129F, so the section "other names used" on page 4 is blank. Eventually, he will have his birth certificate with him at his interview (assuming my 129 form passes USCIS), so this information will be known. And then again when we do the AOS here (I see now that the wording of the question is much more detailed in the I-485 than in the I-129F). 


What should I do to correct this mistake? Should I call USCIS and make a correction? Should I wait until he has his interview? Is this really a big issue? Thanks in advance!

I fixed a mistake I made in my i-129f (omitted fields) and I did 2 things to fix it:


1. Sent in a supplement to the address in the NOA1 entitled 'i-129f supplement for omitted fields' which included a cover that had my receipt number, petitioner name and date of birth, beneficiary name and date of birth, receipt date, list of contents included in the supplement (e.g. page 2, part 1, 10.a - 10.b omitted address details) and a small explanation of what I omitted. I then included a new version of that page completely filled out behind the cover letter. I dated and signed the cover letter.


2. On the website I submitted a typographic error form, I don't think this is correct, but I wanted it in the system. They did reply to this.


I sent this in as soon as I noticed the error (3 months after submission) and I got my NOA2 with no RFE.
