Unhappy

my name on my medical diploma is "abc kaur"
while on my passport and u.s. green card it appears as "abc def" as i have changed my name legally to "abc def".
my college won't be able to write a letter regarding it,, because it being a defence organisation, they are not allowed to write it..
can u please advice me how to proceed?? i haven't registered with ecfmg yet.....
will it be enough if i provide my medical school transcripts stating my older name and copies of my passport, green card and the court order stating my name change????
