There is nothing in Mailman per se that prohibits using a hyphen (dash,
minus sign) in a list name. I have several lists with hyphenated names.

If you are having difficulty, it may because your MTA treats any '-' in
the local part as a delimiter (whch would also render the list-owner,
list-bounces, etc. addresses unuseable) or some other MTA
configuration issue.
