Mistakenly used old first name on my tax returns

Long story short, I got naturalized mid-Jan this year and had my first and middle names changed. My last name is still the same. When I went to go do my taxes, I filed under my old name, but my social security card is coming with my new name on it. Essentially, the names do not match.

I think this is the reason my refund is taking so long. My tax return was F/A on 3/6 but the WMR bar disappeared around 3/25. Nothing in the mail or anything yet. Also having trouble ordering transcripts from IRS. 
Any advice or what I should expect in the coming days?

For the time being, the IRS is putting all of their efforts into the details of the stimulus payments. Once they have that all figured out, they will resume processing and issuing refunds. The only thing to do right now is wait. You should be hearing something back soon.
