Default Renewing UK passport - name change

Came to the US in 2015 on a k1 visa. Need to renew my UK passport. Do I use my maiden name or married name?

Thanks!

Use whichever name you want to. Your choice! If you have changed your name on everything else, you will probably want to do so on your passport. But if you do decide to have different names on passports from different countries, carry a copy of your marriage certificate when you travel.

After our daughter married she didn’t change her name on her passport but a year or so later booked flights to Canada in her married name and then needed her marriage certificate to board the plane.
