Hyphenated names are very common in Sweden, but not popular nowadays.
Some common hyphenated names in Sweden:

GIRLS
Anna-Maria
Anna-Karin
Anna-Lisa
Anna-Lotta
Anna-Lena
Eva-Lena (my aunt's name, BTW)
Inga-Lena
Inga-Lisa
Inga-Lill
Anne-Charlotte
Ann-Kristin (or Anne-Christine)
Anne-Marie
Lise-Lotte
Else-Marie
Anna-Märta
Kajsa-Stina
Gun-Britt
Gun-Marie
etc etc

BOYS
Karl-Johan
Leif-Göran
Karl-Gustav
Karl-Oskar
Jan-Erik
Lars-Erik
Lars-Göran
Jan-Olof
Karl-Erik
etc, etc

Many Saami (the indigenous people in the north of Norway, Sweden and Finland - plus Kola peninsula in Russia), at least in Norway and Sweden, have combo names, but not always hyphenated.
Examples:

Sara Marit
Elle Kari
Elle Garen
Aslak Nils
Ida Maarja
Jon Andreas
Sara Inga
Risten Anne
Inger Anne
