Certificate Name changed by marriage; LoR

I have changed my name to married name & also changed it in ECFMG record.
now i plan to get some LORs form my med school. should those LORs mention my maiden name (as registered in med school) or my married name as it is now?

Also is there an exact format for an LOR?
please help!
thanks.

It would be better if your med school professors agree to write in your new last name.

There's no specific format for the LoR but you can make use of the general guidelines posted here
