I used a hyphen with my daughters middle name, because at the time, I really thought that was the best way to do it. If we use two middle names with this baby, I won't use a hyphen this time. You rarely put the second middle name on anything other than birth certificate and social security card, the rest of the time they usually just want a middle initial.

Hyphen.
When I think of multiple middle names I think of European royalty and their long names.
I like long, dramatic names, but I prefer them with hyphens.

Examples that I love:

Marie-Therese Charlotte (Marie Antoinette's first daughter)
Sophie-Helene Beatrix (Marie Antoinette's second daughter)

I also love Ann-Marie.

If you hyphenate it, you can't call it "two middle names" anymore. It becomes one name. Do you tell Charlie Jones-Smith that he has two last names? No. He has one last name. Jones-Smith.

Marie-Therese, Sophie-Helene, etc, I also think are very pretty but they aren't two names. If her name was Marie Therese or Sophie Helene, yes, that's two names. But hyphenated, it's not.

As far as the example, Amber Lilith Rose Lastname has four names. Two middle names. Amber Lilith-Rose Lastname has three names. One middle name.

No hyphen for me - if I was going to use 2 middle names I would want them to be separate names, not joined together
