Prevent maiden name being used a middle name

A divorced sister in the ward is receiving correspondence from the church with her name as firstname maidenname marriagename, meaning her maiden name is being used as a middle name. She does not have a middle name and so contacted me to correct her record, thinking her record had a middle name entered in it.

Is it normal for church correspondence to use a woman's maiden name as a middle name? I tried creating a preferred name with her firstname and marriagename, but since it was the same it was not stored in the record as a preferred name.
