I'm in a similar boat with a hyphen in my surname. Many booking sites won't accept anything other than letter so my surname is either spelt with a space between both parts or put together as one long word.
It's caused a couple of headaches in the past in terms of getting FF membership details attached to the booking (membership number and surname didn't reconcile), but these days the systems tend to have picked up on the issue as I haven't had an issue lately. I've never had any issue with check-in, passport controls etc.
