But the accounts were under your married name for a long time, correct??  Credit Karma gets its information from Transunion so it will have credit information for this interactive site to use.  No one else sees this information.  It is not one of the credit bureaus that potential creditors can use to find out how you are doing.  It IS an interactive site so that you can use the tools available in an attempt to improve your credit score.

So don't sweat the small stuff, such as married name showing up.  It is insignificant and will eventually disappear as the information on Transunion eventually changes (usually about 7 years).
