You might need to also produce her certificate of birth to explain the middle name and a statement from her explaining why it does not appear anywhere else.

I seriously doubt that any of this would create issues at your interview stage.

It would be good to have a letter explaining why her passport does not match your passport.
Alexus P. Sham-The above information is only general in nature and does not constitute legal advice. It does not create an attorney-client relationship.
If your wife has a middle name, it should appear on her birth certificate and it should be listed by you on your Form DS-260, where this information about your wife is requested. If it comes up at your immigrant visa interview you can explain that your wife forgot to include her middle name on the Form I-130 Immigrant Petition that she filed on your behalf.
Your wife can also send a letter to the USCIS, with a cooy of the I -130 Approval Notice and a copy of her birth certificate, and explain that she forgot to list her middle name at the time she filed the I-130 Immigrant Petition and would now like to correct the record.
This sounds like a case of harmless error and does not sound like anything that would be grounds for revocation of the approved I-130 Petition or be the cause of other problems. However, now that you have the opportunity to correct the record with a U.S. government agency, you should do so.
