Rules as to what you can change your name to on SS card

What rules are there as to what you are allowed to changed your name to on your ss card? I just got married and have a marriage certificate, but it does not list my new name. When I fill out the ss-5 form, I will be deciding my new name. The form has spaces to fill in your old and new name for first, middle, and last, but are you actually allowed to change all of them because of marriage, or just your last name? Can you have a 2 word middle name? I can't seem to find anything on the ss website about what you are allowed to change your name to, just how to. Thanks!

According to a study, the optimal Social Security claiming age for a 55-year-old single man with a life expectancy of 76 is age 65, according to a HealthView Services analysis.

This of course depends on health and life expectancy, but since delaying Social Security benefits results in an 8 percent higher benefit, it's best to not claim early according to a HealthView Services analysis.
