Yeah, we thought about hyphenating our names, but we both have enough
trouble getting our own last names spelled correctly. We didn't want to open
the double can of worms, too. :) I dunno how we're going to handle the
enventual kids' names, but I think we'll probably settle on one last name or
the other for simplicity's sake.

We new a couple a few years ago who tacked each other's last name onto their
own. She became:

   herfirstname herlastname-hislastname

and he became

   hisfirstname hislastname-herlastname

They both had longish last names to begin, and the last names were
alliterative, so it was kind of silly. The sort of thing you expect to see
in a New Yorker short story.
