Everyone I know with a hyphen uses X – Y in all context, at work, social occasion and on legal documents.

My doctor has a hyphenated last name and on very rare occasions, because hers is a mouthful, her nurses and I will just use X rather than X-Y.

My last name is hyphenated purely for the technical aspect of when we have children I will have the same last name as them. My legal things like the SS card, DL etc are with my hyphenated name however I still go by my maiden name and do not use his at all.

This can be pretty fluid. I’m planning on following the example a couple of friends/colleagues have done: I’m going into academia, and will publish under my hyphenated name so that a visible connection will remain to my earlier, pre-married publications published under my maiden name. On a day-to-day basis, though, and especially for family-related stuff, I’ll go by FI’s last name.
