It depends on the names. I think __ ____ Mary/Joseph Baker-Smith won't be too bad as long as you keep the other two names relatively short. It might be that your child decides to go primarily as ___ Baker or ___ Smith unofficially anyway, I know a couple of people with double surnames who've dropped one half of it, though one of those was more Spanish naming customs rather than it being hyphenated. It would be worse if your surname was a mouthful, like Henderson-Newbury, but if it's only three syllables, Baker-Smith is really no different from being Henderson in terms of spoken length.
