Do you want to take two surnames?

  • Print

If you want to have two surnames, you must write the surnames separated by a hyphen. If you would prefer not to use a hyphen, you must choose one surname as a middle name.

Hyphenated double surnames

Example: Petter Hansen-Olsen. Here, Hansen-Olsen is the surname.

If you decide to have a double surname, you must always use the full name. You will be listed in the telephone book under the first letter of your first surname. In this example, the person concerned would be listed under H.

Middle names and surnames

Example: Petter Hansen Olsen. Here, Hansen is the middle name and Olsen is the surname.

If you decide to have two surnames, where one is a middle name, there is no requirement to use the middle name. You will then be listed in the telephone book under the first letter of your surname. In this example, the person concerned would be listed under O.
