Can you get rid of your 2nd or 1st name after you get married?

Hello once again everyone, I apologize in advance if this has been asked already but I am quite confused after the SSA experience I had... 

 

I'll try and layout everything as easy as possible.

 

So let's say my name is Anna Nicole Smith and I marry my now husband, Thomas Johnson. 

I decide to take his last name but I also want to remove my 1st name since I've never really liked it, so I would like to just be Nicole Johnson, is this possible or do I need a court order to have my 1st name removed? 

 

By the by, I've never had a SSN before and I arrived on a K-1 visa on August 29th.

Depends on your state but most likely a petition through the court 


YMMV
