Double Barreled names? Love em or leave em? I don't think I'd use them, but I do find them to be pretty.

For example...
Ann-Marie
Emma-Kate
Lily-Rose

I met someone named John-Harmon. I thought it was a first/last named thing and after about 9 months realized it was a hyphenated name. Oops! I can't think of any other boy examples.

I like some of them, like Ann-Marie. I knew a little boy named Jean-Pierre but everyone called him JP

Where I live the double names (no hyphen) are THE thing. Kids go by first and middle. I don't care for it, but some double names are cute.

In fact, my real name is "Kelli-Ann"

I love it! Double names are super super common in my family since we're Catholic. Tons of Mary Anne, Mary Rose, Mary Jo, Mary Lu...etc etc. I intend to use Mary Eleanore after my mom and Annemarie too
