Slice: Hyphenated-Name Conundrum

Got a note from a reader who teaches at a local grade school. I’m going to keep her name to myself, in case any parents of her pupils would freak out about this. Alluding to Tuesday’s Slice, she began, “What kind of hippie are you? Two last names in your family?” She continued. “I have three girls with hyphenated names in my class this year. What happens when they marry a boy with a hyphenated name? Do they keep their own name or tack on two more names?/Paul Turner, The Slice. More here.

Question: Anyone know of an instance in which two individuals with hyphenated last names married? How did they solve the problem of 4 hyphenated names combining? And/or: Are there hyphenated surnames in your family tree?
