someone was born+a longer name
Hi,I'd like to ask teachers some questions.
"Lulu was born Marie McDonald McLaughlin Lawrie, on November 3rd, 1948, the eldest of a family of four, in Lennox Castle, Lennoxtown, Glasgow - the daughter of a local butcher."
1.What does "someone was born+a longer name" mean?
2.Can the hyphen before "the daughter of a local butcher." be replaced by a comma?

1. "Lulu" is the name her friends call her, but her real name, the name she was given when she was born, is Marie McDonald McLaughlin Lawie.
