Will the border patrol get pissy?

Will I have a problem crossing the US/Canadian border if I'm in the middle of a name change and my passport has my old name while my SSN card and driver's license have my new name?

Long story short, changing one's name sucks. I've changed it with social security and on my driver's license but my passport still has my old name. Will I have any problems making a day trip to Canada (driving across the border)? I could take the new and old social security card, the new and old driver's license, and the marriage certificate if needed.
I'm guessing they'll look at the passport, see it's me, and be fine. However, if they somehow try to crosscheck with the social security dept I'd be screwed.
