How to write middle name initials

Questions about double names


Written by tatti on 09/27/2015, 8:09 pm

Hello

Which of you has a double name or is given a double name (with a hyphen, both pronounced)?

What are the initials then?

And what else do you need to know?

Thank you for your information

We have deliberately given a double name without a hyphen! So you don't have to write out the full name and theoretically you can choose a name .... both are called. Only the first name is called at the doctor ...

Hello,

we deliberately did NOT use a double name (with a hyphen). Our children have several equal first names.

I myself have a double name WITHOUT a hyphen, but I am called by the 2nd name. The RUFname is simply underlined if you sign with your full name, but it is important to be called with the RUFname.

The double name in a different order just doesn't sound fully spoken either.

I would always do it without - if you are simply more flexible and don't always write for a long time.

I have two first names without a hyphen, usually only the first is used, otherwise both are used - only my yoga teacher loves my second and addresses me with it. I respond to both of them.
My daughter has 3 first names, the first is the most frequently used, my son has 4 first names, usually the first, and now and then also the second - but never all of them at once!

We have not given a double name but a middle name. So without a hyphen. Wouldn't it be stupid if my daughter always had to sign with Jemina-Mariau. It only appears on official documents and if you want to specify it later.

I don't have a double name myself, but I have colleagues of mine. It goes without saying that you will always be addressed by the double name and will also sign that way. From this point of view, the hyphen means that it is "just" a name. I also make sure that I always address them by their full double name.

Example of the initials ...

Hans-Peter = HP (he also only reacts to "HP")
Marie-Sophie = MS

The double names with a hyphen are currently not in fashion; but there are very nice common double names.
I know a little Karl-Philipp, for example; the name fits the dwarf 100%.

At the moment it is more like second, third, .... names that win the race (luckily for some children this is limited to 5 first names).

Thank you for your answer.

With the initials, how about Karl-Phillip Müller, for example?
K.-P. M. or KPM?

Kind regards Tatti

Would write KPM and omit the hyphen and dots from the initials (too complicated). But I can also well imagine that a KaPi Müller will be outside (like Malu = Marie-Luise).
