I am pretty sure the name when you're applying doesn't really matter. As long as you have the correct names on the DS-260 then you will be fine. MAKE sure that the names are correct for the DS-260 form.

If I am wrong, someone can correct me on this.

not entirely true, some errors at the time of application can be forgiven but if the applicant is from a high fraud country additional scrutiny may be applied. Additionally, some people use shady tactics like this to make multiple entries.
All you can do is ensure your DS-260 is filled in correctly and hope the CO accepts this as an honest mistake. However you are already putting yourself at risk of denial by using an old photo - the choice is yours to proceed with the application or not
