Q: Hi,I have a step son and he has 2 last names. Taylor-O’Neill.Which name would be used as his last name, e.g in school?

We agreed on the hyphenated last name so the mother was happy, but overall we wanted him to have his dads last name(O’Neill). Was it wrong how we hyphenated it. Is the first last name what places,business, etc go by? Thank you.
