Can I eliminate my two last name if I am just a permanent resident?

Asked 8 months ago - Naples, FL

I will be getting married soon but I do not want to have 3 last name on my driver license or social. Will be possible just to have one last name. Where I come normally everyone there has a middle name along with both parents last name. So my name is long but do not want to be even longer when I take my fiance last name. Ex. Jane Ann Smith Parker, if I add my fiance last name aftet I get married will I have name be like that plus another last name added on?
