We're getting way OT here, but I actually looked this up fairly recently--there's no accepted convention in the US as to which name comes first. It's up to the couple, and there's no established, traditional way of doing it. FWIW, most people I know with hyphenated last names have their mother's last name first. I have no idea if there's a standard convention in Nordic culture though.

Sooo....go MZA!
