IYour (or whoever came up with that naming convention) would make names ridiculously long.
How so? It would never exceed something like Name Name-House for females and Name-House for males. The mother's name is never used, males simply have a two-part name, and females have a single name followed by their father's full name.

At worst, it would only get long when citing your lineage. Which hardly comes up regardless of what culture you're from, and even when it did it would be no different than John Smith, son of Jack Smith, son of James Smith, etc.
