More Moore

When Stewart Info Corp. (NYSE Ticker=STC) Director and rel estate expert Laurie Moore married her husband, also surnamed Moore, and decided to keep her name (along with that of her spouse), what could Laurie Moore-Moore have possibly been thinking? Moore is better? Perhaps there was another Moore at her firm, or even another Mrs. L. Moore?!?!?

My wife, too, chose to hyphenate and keep a semblance of her prior identity, so I quibble not at the principle, but I also know what a pain-in-the-arse (not to mention an envirinmental waste) it was to change everything. But in Mrs. Moore-Moore's case, I ask: "for what?", other than derision and laughter at her expense.
