I changed my name twice after I naturalized, once I dropped my middle name then a year later I added one. Can I use the old naturalization certificate with the two name change orders as proof of citizenship to sponsor my wife for green card with USCIS?
Yes, that combination of documents should be acceptable.

The naturalization certificate should address that issue.
Use the combination of documents, which USCIS should find acceptable. I agree with my learned colleagues. Immigration is an extremely complex and technical area of law. This is not merely a matter of filling out forms. What you do not know can have grave consequences and even prevent you from obtaining immigration benefits. You need to retain an experienced immigration attorney for any immigration matter or you may throw away your future. Good luck.
