John, Paul, & Anne are all one syllables and I think that makes it easier to pair them up as one ( even with the two syllable Marie)
    I couldn't have said this better. I know a Mary-Katherine and no matter how much her parents tried it always got shortened to Mary-Kate or Mary-K (even MK). It was just too long. For double barrels to work in full in the long run they need to be short and sweet names.

    I second this. And Anna-Beatrix is truly lovely. Furthermore, it's no longer than something like Anna-Maria, which most people would consider acceptable.
