If no what's your opinion on it?

My first name is hyphenated. I see no problem with it. But when I go to new docs they always try to put my second first name as my middle initial

It's annoying. When I workers as s pharmacy tech usually they'd only give one name, or they'd give both and they were both hard to spell, sometimes the tech that entered them left out the hyphen. Drama. I work at s schedule now and it still causes problems. I don't get it, but to each their own.

Would you rather have your name without - in it? Like MaryAnn instead if Mary-Ann?

No and I'd avoid it.

Ask anyone who has anything unusual about their name- like more than 1 capital letter Like McD or an apostrophe- It is he!! when people are trying to find you in their system. You never know how people will input your name into any given system.

My daughter's middle name is LeeAnn, no hyphen, but 2 capital letters.  Lee is dh's middle name, Ann is mine.  We just added them together.
