Is it mandatory to include spouse name in the passport for H1B, H4

While applying for H1B and H4, is it mandatory to include spouse name in the passport and if it is mandate, please let me know the process .

Though it would definitely help to have the spouse name included in the passport, it is not mandatory. Marriage certificate,wedding photos and if possible the wedding invitation would suffice.

Following links provide you brief idea about the requirements but confirm with your local passport office.
