Does this double barreled name work?

[name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Hazel[/name_f]? I really like it, but I’m not sure if most people would insist on dropping [name_f]Hazel[/name_f]. I would be fairly disappointed if [name_f]Hazel[/name_f] was never used because it really adds something to the feel of [name_f]Mary[/name_f] in my opinion. Could you please say [name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Hazel[/name_f] aloud? Does it feel natural?

[name_m]Reading[/name_m] it, [name_f]Mary[/name_f]-[name_f]Hazel[/name_f] looks pretty.
However, when I said it aloud it did not sound natural.

I think in most cases with double barrel names, the second name usually gets dropped in day-to-day conversations.

That’s just me personally. You could always use it and ask people to say both but ultimately it may end up shortened to [name_f]Mary[/name_f].

This really depends on where you live. Here in the South, if you introduced your daughter (or she introduced herself) as [name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Hazel[/name_f], people would call her [name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Hazel[/name_f]. We love our double names. Not sure about the northwestern US though.

It does sound very stunted when you try to say it out loud repeatedly. I think it could work as a first and middle combo, but not a double name.

Prefer [name_f]Summer[/name_f] [name_f]Hazel[/name_f] :slight_smile:
