Double-hyphenated Surnames

I'm doing some thrilling work right now--making lots of minute adjustments to FileMaker layouts so that each record will print out on a single page. While scrolling through records to see if the majority of fields are large enough to display the data, I noticed that the surname field was too short. Why? Because there are numerous double hyphenated surnames, e.g.:
  • Rasmussen-Baltzell-Skelding
  • Sikorsky-Williamson-Ortega
  • Schmidt-Juzwiak-Matterlink

I think that's getting out-of-hand. People, shorten your names so that they fit into my database layout template, please!
