My dutch name on my passport and birth certificate has no middle name.

 

I am planning to use my husband's last name for AOS.

 

Based on my experience U.S. Names have middle names. Should I use my maiden last name as my new middle name? or should I not use a middle name on my U.S. documents? 

 

Note: If I apply for a new dutch passport they only include "wife of ..." Just wondered if this creates conflict with everything.

Not all American have middle names. It is pretty common, but not necessary. I know lots of women who have their maiden name as a middle name, use both maiden and married name together, or no middle name at all.  It's totally up to you!

I would double check if what you want is possible. In some states you have to get an official name change before this is possible. Tbh, I doubt USCIS will just put your maiden name as your middle name in the system, but I could be wrong. And no, not all Americans have a middle name. 

 

You can also choose the easier option and keep your maiden name and get your husbands last name on top of that.

It's totally up to you, as long as you are consistent. I chose to use my maiden name as my middle name. Like you, I did not have a middle name. And for me this is a nice way to still keep my Dutch background in my name without making my last name weird and long.

I filed AOS and EAD in the name I wanted to use. My Dutch passport is in my maiden name, but I don't really use it as an ID anyway now that I have my greencard and driver's license. It was just a bit complicated while I did not have any documents in my new name yet. But when I opened my bank account I just showed my marriage certificate and explained that my passport was in my maiden name and told them what my new name is.

You are.  If that is her legal name, the uscis will do it.  Exactly what my ex did and exactly what 90+% of filipinas do as well
