I am Ms Me at work, however.....we have just changed both our names to Mr and Mrs Me-Him (ie both double barrelled).
Double-barrelling my maiden name with my married name would have given me an extremely silly surname indeed, no matter in which order I'd placed them

I frequently get letters from the BMA (who should definitley know better) addressed to Mr (name here) MBBS Lond. FRCS Ed., which start: "Dear Mr Ed."!
My middle initial is E, so I'm held on some databases as Mrs D E Surname. The first two initials occasionally get merged by the data entry person and then put into lower case, so I receive post addressed to Mrs de Surname
You're right though Robodoc, the BMA should know better.
Knowing both names, I can see why, you would sound as if you were employed in the catering industry.
I'm sorry Cyrilla that was meant to read I'm definately not
Mrs Him Indoors, even though I've taken his name as its the more distinguished of the two. And yes I did reveal that it like a certain department store.
It was hillarous when I got a request for the boys on Classic FM... Simon Bates ended up saying "yes that really is the name". The boys were stoked to hear their name on National Radio.
