    Greetings,

    Please, which is the correct spelling of the above name: Mehmet-Ali (with a dash) or Mehmet Ali (without a dash)?

    Furthermore, is there a short form of this name (like ‘İbo’ for ‘İbrahim’)? Perhaps something like ‘Memoli’ / ‘Memodi’?

    Best wishes, and many thanks,

    Simon

    No hyphens between names in Turkish. It's Mehmet Ali.

    Memoli is indeed the short form of Mehmet Ali. No such thing as Memodi, though.
