If i live outside Poland but still obtain a Polish passport can i change my middle name in Poland?

If so... Is it possible to use "Van" "Von" as a middle name in Poland?

That can heppen only if you have a real basis for doing so. Your wish isn't enough. If one of your parents had such a name you could revert to it but if it's just out of nothing - then no.

Yes. Von suggests aristocratic background and isn`t even Polish so adding it on request to sb`s name isn`t practised. But it surely sounds awesome: Róża Maria Barbara Gräfin von Thun und Hohenstein

"Von" was a requirement to add to ones surname if you had an aristocratic background in Germany (late 1800?) I am pretty sure it was for the families that had German nobility, even tho all nobles regardless of nationality/culture had to follow Prussia's/Germans heraldic laws
