Nah. I know a few and I don't think much of it.



My mum wanted to hyphenate my name to Jessica-Lee but decided not to. Personally I like that cos I don't like hyphenated names the way they look just looks funny to me. But I don't judge on them.

I don't think so but I personally wouldn't give one to my child. My way of thinking was that even if me and my SO don't stay together that is still his son no matter what so I gave my son his fathers last name.

Im like set on my name but its Ava Monroe.....when I say it I love saying it together rather than like first and middle name. The only reason why I second guess cause of ( yes ) others views and then like what would be a middle name with that if I did decided to do a Hyphen???? Or just no middle name????

My DDs middle name is Erin-Leigh :D



But I don't think I'd ever do it again.

Its a first name....this child would be by the same man and his or her brother has fathers last and so will he or she.

Hyphenated can be okay... apostrophes not so much.

Awe, I love Ava Monroe. I think it'd be cute as two names :D



I always call DD Kenzie Mae, like it was one name, but it's two.

It depends on the names. I like:



Mary-Jane
Mary-Alice
Mary-Ann



I think Ava Monroe is better this way than Ava-Monroe.
