Hyphenated – #JusJoJan the 17th, 2023

Welcome to the daily prompt! Today is your thirteenth prompt for Just Jot it, January 2023, brought to you by Sally. Thank you, Sally! Please visit Sally’s blog to read her post and say hello. And follow her while you’re there if you’re not already.

Your prompt for JusJoJan, January 17th 2023, is “hyphenated” Use the word “hyphenated” any way you’d like. Have fun writing!

I often think about those with hyphenated surnames. You know, the double-barrelled ones that make a person sound posher than they may actually be.

Double-barrelled surnames aren’t really a thing in our culture, but I wondered whether it would be good to double barrel my maiden and married name…

Padhaal-Bhathal or Bhathal-Padhaal…

It has a funny ring to it. I know I wouldn’t stop laughing if I had to say that with any regularity!

Sp, no, no hyphenated surnames for me!

    Oh gosh, those “double”-names. I was happy to change my name from a long to a very short one. I was really not interested to make the long name (which I always had to spell on the phone) even longer… lol. Also, today, I see how well my married name works in English… hehe.

    Oh, I can relate. My cousin has a hyphenated maiden name and surname, it’s tedious for her workplace. 😂

    Indeed, for you it would be a nice combination, and the pupils would have to spell it correctly. Best wishes, Sis! xx Michael
