But you will find people in the 'south' who also call their mam-gu 'Nain'!

Does it always use a hyphen. We never did when we wrote Mamgu on any cards to my Grandmother

Mam-gu is the usual dictionary spelling (it gives an indication of stress on the second syllable). Nevertheless, people do often write mamgu. (Similarly with tad-cu / tadcu.)
