I gave my son a single name for his first name but I have a friend going through the same thing. She named her daughter Mary Beth and constantly has to correct people so they don't reference the child just as 'Mary'.

I worked with a Mary Beth back in 2010-11 who had the same problem. This has become such an issue for me that I've recently been thinking of writing her name with a hyphen from now on. Maybe if the name appears hyphenated it will 'clear things up' for people who don't understand that when the mom says both names, they need to as well!
