For me, it wasn't a very appealing option since my maiden name was 9 letters. I was SOOO happy to change my name to one that was only 4 letters long after I got married.

It doesn't particularly bother me if other people hyphenate their last name, as long as they are consistent. I have to deal with medical records at work, and it's annoying and confusing when people sometimes hyphenate their surname and sometimes don't. Are Sally Smith-Jones and Sally Smith the same Person? And if someone asks about Sally Jones and we have Sally Smith-Jones on file, we're going to have a hard time connecting the records. Now, if she's always Sally Smith-Jones, it's not much of a problem. Some places have computer software that apparently doesn't accommodate hyphens, because I've seen stuff like Sally Smithjones which adds another layer of confusion. I do think you have to be careful about how the names work together. Some sound kind of dumb (I've seen Johnson-Nelson which sound silly to me) and some are just so long and cumbersome.

My little girl has my last and my husband's,but with no hyphen.
In Brazil kids usually have only one name (no mn),then the mother's ln and the father's.
