Can I use a name for SSN that is different from my visa?

I'm currently under my parents' e2 visa, but I might get my ssn during this summer. on my visa, it has my legal name from my country...but since my name was too hard for native speakers to pronounce, I went by an English name for long....I used that name for all my middle and high school year, so I want to keep using this name. Can I use different name to apply for SSN? If I can't, is there a way to change my name on visa, so I can put English name for SSN when I apply for it?
Thanks. Have great day!

I have moved this to the off-topic forum since it is not a Unix question. I'm not sure if any of us can answer your question though. I know that ssn = social security number, but I don't know what e2 visa means.

I was 16 when I learned to spell my name. I showed my mom my new driver's licence. She said, "They spelled your name wrong." I said, "Huh?". My middle name is Stephen on my birth certificate, but I have always spelled it Steven. When i got my ssn, the form asked me for my name and also any other names I use. I put both versions on the form. I assume they still ask for multiple names, but I don't know for sure.

It would easier to change it when you get a passport (when/if you become a citizen) -
all other changes can only done through your native country.
