    Default Changing a 2 yr olds name

    Not drastically, her name has a hyphen in it. And it's a pain when spelling it to people. Would you change a name because of this? If the first and 2nd name become one it isn't weird iv written it down a few times to test it. What would you do?

    I'm just worried about the hole when she is older and filling in forms and it asks if she was known by a dif name

    I'd just write it without the hyphen. Realistically the only place it needs to be right is on official documents the first time.

    My name has a hyphen in it and it's seriously not that much of a big deal. I usually go buy the first half of my name anyway, only need to use the hyphen for official forms etc

    IMO if you remove the hyphen you'd get a completely different name.

    Don't stress that it's bogan. Every thing in bubhub land is bogan.

    I have a hyphenated first name and its never been an issue. I always just go by the first half anyway.
