what are your favourite hyphenated name combos?

I’ve been thinking about hyphenated first names recently- i like their vintage charm, relaxed feel and potential for unique combinations. I was wondering what you Berries thought of hyphenated names, what your favourite combinations are or if you’d come across any fabulous hyphenated names?

I’ve come across a [name]Lily[/name]-[name]Ella[/name], although the one time I saw it written it was as a smush (Lilyella) so I’m not sure whether it was hyphen or smush.

I’ve met countless -[name]May[/name]/[name]Mae[/name]'s. [name]Lily[/name]-[name]Mae[/name], [name]Ella[/name]-[name]Mae[/name], [name]Freya[/name]-[name]Mae[/name], [name]Ellie[/name]-[name]Mae[/name], Justletmeadda-[name]Mae[/name].

I did once read in the paper about a girl called [name]Lucy[/name]-[name]Anna[/name], which I thought was different and quite quirky. And I know a [name]Sophie[/name]-Taela, who just goes by [name]Sophie[/name].

Hyphenated names aren’t really my thing, I’d prefer to have fn [name]Lucy[/name] mn [name]Anna[/name] and call by both than hyphen them.

I love [name]Lily[/name]-[name]Rose[/name]. [name]Love[/name] the over botanical feel.
I also love [name]Tiger[/name]-[name]Lily[/name] from my childhood :slight_smile:

Unless the names are French, I generally prefer double names without the hyphen, but I do like [name]Mary[/name]-[name]Kate[/name].

I like many hyphenated combos with [name]Anna[/name]. Some more that the others.
[name]Anna[/name]-[name]Carin[/name], [name]Anna[/name]-[name]Katharine[/name], [name]Anna[/name]-[name]Lena[/name], [name]Anna[/name]-[name]Martha[/name], [name]Anna[/name]-[name]Carina[/name], [name]Anna[/name]-[name]Marie[/name] …
I also like [name]Mary[/name]-[name]Elizabeth[/name] (but I don’t like the french version [name]Marie[/name]-[name]Elisabeth[/name]), [name]Ann[/name]-[name]Elizabeth[/name] (or [name]Anne[/name]-[name]Elisabeth[/name]), [name]Leah[/name]-[name]Louise[/name] …
But i’d probably never use any of them.

Don’t get me wrong - I like hyphens - but there are names fit for the tail end of a hyphen other than Mae. Like -Jay, -Jane, -Louise, -Cerise, -Aline, -Sage, -Noelle, -Wren, -Leigh, -Brielle, -Colette, -Paige, -Laine, -Teal, -Bree, -Dawn, -Elle, etc.

[name]LOVE[/name] compund names!
My faves are

I recently stumbled upon [name]Claire[/name]-Cécile and think it’s really sweet.

[name]Mae[/name]/may does seem to feature in a lot of hyphenated names, but i like something a bit more unexpected. [name]Love[/name] [name]Tiger[/name]-lily!

I love retro classics like [name]Peggy[/name]-[name]Sue[/name] and i’ve come across mixtures of girly names with more tom-boyish ones like [name]Bobby[/name]-[name]Kate[/name], which i love! I think its the relaxed, southern style names which appeal to me and hyphenated names seem to fall into that catergory. Some favourites-
and i remember a nameberry birth announce of a little girl called [name]Etta[/name]-[name]Lou[/name] which i adore!

The only two Hyphenated Names I like atm are

[name]Autumn[/name]-[name]Claire[/name] & [name]Alta[/name]-[name]Mae[/name].

I like [name]Anne[/name]-marie, but I actually prefer is as [name]Annemarie[/name].

I know a [name]Cassidy[/name]-[name]Blair[/name], too.

I am not a fan of hyphenated names. I don’t like any of them.
