Of course, the name of the Welsh composer Ralph Vaughan Williams is not hyphenated, but his surname is Vaughan Williams.

Minnow, *thank you* for clarifying that for me. I've honestly never known
whether her surname was Wynne Jones, or just Jones.

Nice article, but oh how I do wish journalists would stop calling her "Wynne
Jones" as if "Wynne" were a surname.  It isn't.  It's a girl's forename from
Wales.  The surname is Jones.  They wouldn't call Mabel Lucy Atwell "Lucy
Atwell", would they?

This mistake means that she gets put in two places on library and bookshop
shelves and people don't know whether to look for her work under W or J.
