This kind of reminds me about Spanish last names. You have two last names in Spanish; example:

Dolores Garcia Lopez

For an example, if she marries

Juan Flores Medina,

their child could be

Esperanza Flores Garcia,

but if the father is proud of his mother's name, the child could be

Esperanza Flores-Medina Garcia,

which only makes things more harder. But anyway, this is probably useless. Well, I hope you got the message: the mother of the child can add her own maiden to the child's surname; like this for an American:

Sarah Robinson m. Michael Johnson= Larissa Robinson-Johnson.
