[Ger-Poland-Volhynia] Middle Names

I have a question about middle names. My great-grandmother's sister was
named Maria Magdelena.
We know her as being called Marie in the US (because she later changed her
name from Maria to Marie).
Would it have been standard for her to have been called Magdelena, as was
common, when she was in Russia and later used her 1st name
in the U.S? We are trying to determine the name that would have been
recorded on the birth record in Russia. Would we look under Maria or
Magdelena or try both?
Thanks in advance for any information you can give me on the use of calling
people by either their first or middle names during the late 1890's.
