300 to 820 - When did you change your name?

Quick question for those of you who have gone from the PMV 300 to the 820, if you changed your name, at what stage did you do so? I fully intend to take my partners name but it seems like quite a time consuming process to get everything changed over including my passport. We would like to apply for the 820 as soon as we can and I would like to focus on that as opposed to worrying about the name change and waiting for a new passport etc. However, will it go against our application if I haven't yet changed my name? Or if I choose to just use my married name socially, i.e. social media.

I'd love to hear from anyone who lodged their 820 with their maiden name. Thanks!
