Do they really say 'Y'all' in the South and does everyone have two names?

I do say y'all. But my name is Sarah. Sisters Name is Leslie. Brothers name is Jason. No two words names here.

Yes we say Y'all but we don't all have two names. LOL I'm just Bobbie and dh is just Mark. In fact I can only count about a handful of people I've ever met in life that went by two names.

 I say y'all but most people only have one name.  Unless you make your momma mad then you have a first and middle name.  Why are you asking?

I say y'all regularly. My dd does go by her middle name instead of her first, but none of us have 2 names.

I'm not sure if this is for real but I'll answer anyway. Yes we do say 'y'all', but not too many double names. I mean, I go by my first and middle name, but it isn't combined and it isn't the rule.

Yes they say y'all. Some southerners have the 2 name thing going on, but it's not as prevalent as everyone thinks.
